The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) released a short introductory video highlighting the issues that will be discussed during next week's public forum on bus and truck safety.
NTSB Board Member Robert L. Sumwalt will chair the two-day forum, being held May 10 to 11 in the NTSB Board Room and Conference Center in Washington, D.C.
The purpose of the forum is to review the progress that has been made in truck and bus safety in the last decade, and what needs to be done to improve it. The forum will focus on such issues as carrier oversight, truck and bus operations, driver safety and health, and enhanced vehicle safety technologies.
Representatives from federal and state agencies, the trucking and bus industries, unions and advocacy groups will serve as panelists during the forum.
