More to Be Done to Reduce Dangers of Commercial Truck and Bus Accidents

Recently, the National Transportation Safety Board held a two-day forum to discuss commercial trucking and busing safety among federal regulators, industry representatives and safety advocates. The Associated Press reports that the focus of the forum was prevention of deadly accidents and understanding why past safety recommendations have not been enacted or implemented yet. The number of fatal commercial-trucking accidents has decreased in recent years.
