Trained Truck Drivers Drive For Safety
There were fewer fatalities in auto accidents last year than the year before as the focus on safety on America’s roads and highways intensifies. Truck carriers are also increasing their focus on safety by looking for drivers with professional CDL training and experience.
“An estimated 15,470 people died, a decrease of about 4.2 percent when compared to the 16,150 fatalities that were projected to have occurred in the first half of 2012, according to the U.S. Transportation Department’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,” as reported by TruckingInfo.com. “[The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration] reports the percentage change in fatalities has been steadily decreasing since the significant increase projected for the first quarter of 2012.”
Truck carriers are paying closer attention to safety as regulations increase for truck drivers. The New England Tractor Trailer Training school offers students classroom and hands-on training with special focus and dedication to safety.
