Commercial Driver Individual Differences Study

The goal of this study is to identify commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver factors that increase the risk of large truck crashes. This initiative would complete the implementation of a full-scale CMV driver case-control study that will collect detailed data on 21,000 CMV drivers at carriers in geographically dispersed locations, as outlined in the sample design plan.
