Guest: Deborah Lockridge, editor in chief of Heavy Duty Trucking magazine

Following too closely is a factor in some 25,000 truck crashes annually in the U.S., according to federal numbers. And while that represents only a fraction of the approximately half-million truck involved crashes annually, new developments and recent demonstrations show many if not all of these type crashes could become a thing of the past.

In this episode of “Eyes on the Road” presented by PrePass, Evan Lockridge talks with Heavy Duty Trucking magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Deborah Lockridge. They discuss how truck platooning, including pairing just two trucks, holds the promise of improving truck safety while also leading to significant advancements in autonomous truck technology.
