  • Transportation security issues: Corporate Security Reviews, training, TWIC and REAL ID Act, cargo seals and vehicle disabling technologies
  • Driver related issues: electronic on board recorders, CDLIS/NLETS integration, speed and speed limiters, hours of service, traffic enforcement and safety belt initiatives
  • Passenger carrying issues and concerns related to motorcoach and school bus transportation
  • FMCSA's Comprehensive Safety Analysis for 2010 and COMPASS Programs, the recently announced U.S. DOT NAFTA Border Demonstration project and CVSA's Roadcheck and Operation Air Brake Programs
  • Training issues: passenger vehicle inspection course updates, false CDL, HOS status and District Court of Appeals ruling, as well as reviewing the Program Manager's Course and National Transportation Safety Board's (NTSB) recommendations on automatic slack adjuster type brakes Federal agencies from the U.S., Canada and Mexico will be participating in the event and hope to discuss the NAFTA Demonstration Project, as well as share best practices that will further improve safety, security and regulatory harmonization between the three countries.
