A new program sheds intense light on driver crash and inspection records. For good drivers, safety equals bargaining power for pay.
The program allows carriers the option of accessing driver inspection and crash records before hiring.
The cross-border trucking program with Mexico, a driver screening Web site, the Illiana Expressway, IdleAire and truck-only toll lanes in Florida are among the issues featured.
Carriers can register to access a safety database that will be set up for screening applicants for driving jobs.
