Listen: Solving Trucking's Rollover Dilemma

We are seeing a distressing increase in the number of truck rollover crashes these days. And while they are fewer in number, the number of runaway truck crashes on mountain grades remain a problem. What's behind the increase isn't completely clear, but many believe it's a lack of driver training and understanding of vehicle dynamics.

Brian Bullock, the founder Road-Aware Safety Systems, has been studying such crashes for years. He has a pretty good handle on the problem, and he's bringing a solution to the table. He joins HDT Equipment Editor Jim Park to discuss drivers' apparent lack of awareness of vehicle dynamics (and in some cases of proper and safe driving techniques), and to explain how to solve this problem.
