Developing Mitigation Strategies to Reduce Truck Crash Rates on Wyoming Highways

The objective of this study is to identify the primary factors behind the high truck crash rates in Wyoming and then develop mitigation strategies to reduce these high crash rates. The recommended strategies might include tools which will help the Wyoming Highway Patrol in allocating their resources to enhance safety at locations where there are high crash rates. Recommendations will be provided to identify any additional resources to: enhance safety by implementing specific safety improvements, concentrate enforcement efforts, expand truck inspection programs, and develop an outreach program for the trucking industry to reduce truck crashes.
