Help Inc., which offers PrePass weigh station bypass and toll payment services, has debuted a new podcast series emphasizing truck safety and compliance.
Hosted by longtime trucking journalist Evan Lockridge, the Eyes on the Road podcast will consist of two 15-minute episodes online each month, featuring interviews with trucking industry experts on a range of topics.
For instance, the first episode of Eyes on the Road examines different safety data programs used by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to rate trucking operations and will explain how these datasets affect scores.
The second episode is the first of a two-part series entitled "It’s Not My Fault." Part one explores how trucking operations can challenge unfair inspection results that negatively affect safety records. Part two will look at a program being evaluated by FMCSA to allow fleets to remove non-preventable crashes from their safety records.
In the future, Eyes on the Road will explore such topics as automation, traffic congestion, regulatory changes, and economic trends.
“As a non-profit safety organization, the mission of Help Inc. is focused on highway safety and efficiency,” explained Andrew Johnson, Help Inc. chief marketing officer. “Eyes on the Road supports our safety mission by providing information that helps fleets and drivers improve their operation through voluntary compliance.”
