On November 19 and 20, UMassSafe, a division of the UMass Transportation Center, hosted the 2019 Commercial Vehicle Safety Summit with a theme of “Best Practices for Industry and Law Enforcement Partnerships.” The event brought together safety stakeholders from across the Northeast, including those from state trucking and bus associations, law enforcement, state drivers licensing agencies, universities, and government. Michael A. Knodler, director of the UMass Transportation Center, said that “At UMassSafe, we have long believed partnerships are the key to roadway safety. This summit is a direct call to action, through which various agencies, companies, and organizations can come together to collaborate and develop new solutions to the problems roadway users face.” (December 2019)
