To reduce the number of crashes involving commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) and passenger vehicles, particularly those caused by young passenger vehicle drivers, MOST of Us will implement strategies to train drivers ages 20 and younger to operate passenger vehicles safely around CMVs.
The project will begin with formative research on the causes of CMV crashes involving young drivers. MOST of Us will then develop recommendations for tactics and strategies to train and educate young drivers on the dangers and necessities of sharing the road with CMVs. This project will include educational components for the web and television.
