Motor vehicle safety has been recognized as an important public health problem affecting both truck drivers and those in other vehicles for much of the last century. Improving the safety and health environment for the trucking industry requires multidisciplinary collaboration. Environmental conditions also contribute to the safety and health experience of trucking. The frequency of fatal crashes involving trucks varied by time of day and year, as well as by weather conditions. Global Positioning Systems devices can accurately determine and provide information on vehicle location. This is useful to the driver in navigating, and can be used by dispatchers to track driver movements. Trucking managers can play a central role in creating a culture in which safety is a priority for drivers through personal contact, incentives, training, and by sanctioning unsafe acts. The term Age of Information has many possible interpretations and implications as it applies to trucking.
