Webinar : Reducing CMV Crashes Through the Use of Video Recorders
9/13/2018 2:00 PM

Presented by the Office of Highway Safety, SRC Safety Advocacy Division, and the Office of Research and Engineering

In this 1-hr webinar, investigators and recorder analysts from the NTSB's Office of Highway Safety and Office of Research and Engineering, along with commercial fleet owners representing the truck and bus industries, will discuss why and how their organizations use video recorders to improve safety. They will discuss lessons learned from accident investigations and provide case studies highlighting how companies use the data from cameras to review driver and vehicle performance, and make modifications to safety plans. The NTSB believes recorders can improve safety; that's why "Expand Recorder Use to Enhance Safety" is on our Most Wanted List of critical transportation safety improvements. Board Member Bella Dinh-Zarr will provide opening remarks. Attendees have the opportunity to ask questions of the Board Member, investigators, and corporate safety directors in this live broadcast.
