ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decline in the number of highway fatalities in crashes involving large trucks in 2007, according to a study from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The total number of traffic fatalities in large-truck-related crashes decreased 4.4 percent, from 5,027 in 2006 to 4,808 in 2007, according to the study. The decline in fatalities are attributed to the safety technologies used in trucks such as collision avoidance, lane departure warning, stability control, and brake stroke monitoring systems.
