TTI logo

Project Overview

To address the issue of rear-end collisions involving heavy trucks (HT) in Texas, this project conducted a detailed analysis of two-vehicle rear-end crashes involving a HT. The findings were translated into outreach and educational material to improve knowledge of rear-end crashes and their prevention among employers, truck drivers, and law enforcement officers. The materials also include recommendations for increasing the visibility of trucks. These materials will be uploaded below once they are approved by the sponsor.
