Analysis of benefits and costs of forward collision warning systems for the trucking industry by Daniel Murray( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) safety goal is to reduce the number and severity of commercial motor vehicle fatalities and crashes. During the last several years, FMCSA has collaborated with the trucking industry to test, evaluate, and facilitate the deployment of several onboard safety systems for commercial motor vehicles to increase the safety of all roadway users. The purpose of this report is to evaluate costs and benefits for industry associated with Forward Collision Warning Systems that can reduce large truck rear-end crashes. The analysis described herein indicates that Forward Collision Warning Systems on combination and single-unit vehicles will help to prevent rear-end crashes. Motor carriers purchasing this technology will likely see net positive returns on investments within a five-year product lifecycle for the crash types and operating scenarios described in this report
