The article focuses on the potential benefit of evolving regulations to safety systems in Class 6-8 truck market in North America. It cites that the decline in safety-system prices and low installation rates in such trucks will likely benefit the market. Frost & Sullivan research analyst Sethuraman Arunachalam says that the introduction of the bill HR 3820 in the 110th U.S. Congress in October 2007 has led to renewed efforts to require the implementation of advanced safety technologies in all commercial vehicles and such trucks.
