Road Patrol

The NCTA Safety & Human Resources Council members collectively write over 100 reports per month about truck safety performance on North Carolina's highways. These reports on performance (safe driving, load securement, excessive speed, etc.) give specific details and go directly to the trucking company at issue. Law enforcement is contacted only in cases of imminent hazard. This program is performed as a service to the trucking companies that are contacted, so they have additional feedback on their drivers' and vehicles' highway safety performance. The program also serves to enhance highway safety for all travelers.
