Safety Leader Touts Trucking's Safety Investment at Congressional Roundtable

WOODRUFF 2

During a congressional roundtable on emerging technologies in the trucking industry, American Trucking Associations reiterated trucking’s strong record of investing in and implementing innovative technologies to improve safety on the nation’s highways.

 “J.B. Hunt and many ATA members are early adopters of emerging safety technologies,” Greer Woodruff, senior vice president of safety, security and driver personnel at J.B. Hunt, said on behalf of ATA. “In fact the trucking industry spends over $9 billion annually on safety including technology enhancements to help ensure that drivers and passengers of all vehicles make it safely to their destination.”

The roundtable was hosted by the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee’s Subcommittee on Highways and Transit.

Woodruff also pressed lawmakers to include commercial vehicles in automated vehicle legislation under consideration in Congress to ensure that state and federal laws do not conflict or impede the safety and efficiency of interstate commerce. 

 A leading expert on transportation safety, Woodruff serves on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Safety Advisory Committee.
