    I've got a problem with their math....the story starts with "record high for the past 31 years", yet these yahoos areciting how they have improved their crash results for the past 5 to 10 years.

    If they have "improved" over 1/3 of the time....how can we be at a record high?

    Maybe it's the new kids on the block? I noticed a lot of pictures from the crash sites have Amazon trailers in them

    I read articles looking for slant, as a former journalist. I've edited stuff that makes this sound like Shakespeare.

    They think these systems will improve safety... Just wait until every single truck crossing WY on I-80 in the winter time has this crap. Large pileups will begin happen more frequently and for no apparent reason, aside from the lead trucks radar freaked out over a sign or tunnel and slammed on the brakes. We all know how the rest of that story will go...
