FMCSA is putting extra muscle into shutting down truck and bus fleets. Often lacking robust back-office resources to deal with interventions, small carriers can be considered most vulnerable.
Independent owner-operators have the lowest rate of truck-involved crashes but are far more likely to be put out of service than drivers for carriers with 500 or more trucks, which have a higher crash rate.
Overdrive's Most Beautiful contest is back for a second year. Submit yourself or a female truck driver you know! The first-place winner will win a trip to The Great American Trucking Show in August and will be featured in a story in Overdrive. Submissions accepted through March 20.
