– A Survey Initiative by ATRI – Participate Now!
In the trucking industry, driver fatigue has been contributing actively in increasing the number of accidents year by year. One factor that attaches itself as a reason to this has been the issues in finding proper parking spaces so that drivers rest peacefully for the time they have to. When they don’t find the right parking space to rest, they may drive for longer hours than what is meant to be safe or may find themselves not sleeping calmly. In order to address this, the FHWA (Federal Highway Administration) is keen on developing a real-time parking information system currently and is supporting the ATRI (American Transportation Research Institute) in getting them the required information resources.
The ATRI is presently working with various state Departments of Transportation in documenting driver and carrier needs & expectations essentially needed for the truck parking information system. They are encouraging Truck drivers, dispatchers and fleet managers to provide confidential input on truck parking issues through ATRI’s survey, available online at www.atri-online.org or here.
As a trucking well-wisher, Tax2290 of Taxexcise requests you truck drivers, owner-operators or managers to kindly participate in this survey and provide your valuable inputs to the ATRI so that the industry players as well as the nation would be benefitted with the best. Nevertheless, a real-time parking information system helping drivers to find perfect parking spaces easily will make the life of drivers as easy as e-filing excise tax forms on Taxexcise!
