Driving Safety Forward
The 2023 Tri-State Summit saw a record-breaking number of attendees. We hope to see everyone next year to enjoy another great program.
On Day One, attendees enjoyed the latest updates from the Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota State Patrols and FMCSA. Dave Heller from Truckload Carriers Association provided updates on legislation in Washington, DC. The energy was “high,” as Dr. Darrin Grondel, from Responsibility.org, took a deep dive into the ominous effects of marijuana on our industry. Virginia Tech Transportation Institute’s Matt Camden shared his team’s research focused on reducing and eliminating roadway crashes.
On Day Two, attendees got “hands-on” in a group effort to identify the top issues and strategies to address each with Rebecca Brewster of the American Transportation Research Institute.
