FMCSA Announces Steps to Reduce GPS-Caused Bridge Strikes

Sen. Charles Schumer and FMCSA Administrator Ann Ferro stand at the Eagle Avenue overpass in New York, which spans the Southern State Parkway at exit 18. The overpass has been struck at least 27 times by trucks that are prohibited from driving on the parkway.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will begin issuing official recommendations to members of the commercial trucking industry on the proper uses of Global Positioning System navigation devices and incorporate GPS training into new entry-level certification programs for commercial motor vehicle operators.
