The “Top 5 Stable Crash Predictors” for truck drivers, according to analysis performed by the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) are:

  1. A past crash;
  2. An improper lane/location conviction;
  3. A reckless/careless/inattentive/negligent driving conviction;
  4. An improper/erratic lane changes conviction; and,
  5. An improper lane change violation.

ATRI, a research organization affiliated with the American Trucking Associations, conducted three, large-scale ‘Predicting Truck Crash Involvement’ studies since 2005, and these top 5 stable crash predictors were identified as common, crash-predictive behaviors in each of the three studies.
