In a study released today, the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) reveals that truck drivers with certain driving records (i.e. prior crashes, violations and convictions) are more susceptible to being involved in a future truck crash than their peers with clean driving records. The analyses in the report draw on data from 582,772 U.S. truck drivers over a two-year time frame to expose a dozen driver behaviors that raise a driver’s risk of being involved in a truck crash by more than 50 percent.
