NTBS asks for crash avoidance tech mandate


In its annual “Most Wanted List” for 2013, the National Transportation Safety Board says it wants to see collision-mitigation and crash avoidance technology become standard equipment on all Class 8 tractors, among six other trucking-related wishes, including eliminating distractions for drivers and reducing substance-impaired driving.

NTBS is an independent federal agency that intends to promote safety in all modes of transportation by studying causes of accidents.
