The American Transportation Research Institute is seeking driver perspectives on a number of top industry issues through an online survey.

The feedback from drivers will be used in several ATRI studies that will focus on transportation infrastructure funding, the driver shortage, and improving highway safety.

The research firm began collecting driver input on these topics at the Mid-America Trucking Show. where ATRI staff collected over 500 driver surveys.

The online version of the same survey handed out at MATS will allow larger numbers of drivers to weigh in on topics to be included in ATRI’s studies.

"Driver involvement is so critical to ATRI's research and we were extremely pleased with the number of surveys completed at MATS," said Rebecca Brewster, ATRI president and COO.  "We encourage drivers to spend a few minutes completing the online survey so that driver opinions are included in the research on these timely issues."

The survey is available here.
