WASHINGTON – The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has released its 2017 Pocket Guide to Large Truck and Bus Statistics, a resource that supports the agency’s mission of preventing commercial motor vehicle-related fatalities and injuries.
The compact reference guide is a compilation of statistics from the overall state of the industry and provides statistics on crashes, violations, inspections, investigations, enforcement activity and costs of accidents.
It also contains information on FMCSA’s grant programs and a list of agency resources.
“The Pocket Guide can serve as a valuable, compact resource for industry representatives, federal agencies, and other individuals interested in motor carrier safety regulations and performance data,” FMCSA states on its website.
“It will be updated periodically in the future as new data are collected and analyzed.”
The Pocket Guide incorporates and replaces the one-page data summaries, “Commercial Motor Vehicle Facts,” published occasionally over the past 10 years.
The guide, as well as FMCSA’s Large Truck and Bus Crash Facts, can be found at www.fmcsa.dot.gov under the “Safety” tab.
