Truck Safety Program Development
Truck Safety Program Development
A lack of safe, available parking spaces forces many commercial motor vehicle drivers to stop in undesignated or unauthorized areas such as highway shoulders and ramps, abandoned lots, and secluded backroads.
Further, drivers are spending an increasing amount of time to secure overnight parking as dictated by Hours of Service regulations. This leads to lower productivity. According to the American Transportation Research Institute, drivers lost an average of 56 minutes of revenue drive time daily looking for parking, equating to an annual wage loss of $4,600.
In addition, drivers are not getting proper rest which, in turn, leads to more fatigue-related crashes and fatalities.
AJW+A works with toll road highway authorities to maintain and expand their network of rest areas through enhanced revenue opportunities (primarily vending, advertising , and sponsorships). The firm is also actively promoting the use of the federal Interstate Oasis program. The State of Vermont has taken the lead in utilizing this approach by developing its 9,000 SF Maplewood Travel Center. More information can be found here.
Andrew J. Warcaba & Associates is a professional services and consulting firm specializing in the area of motorist-related public-private partnerships, RFP process management, and truck safety programs.
Its projects have resulted in the cumulative commitment of $750 million (US) of private capital into the development of new modern facilities and roadside amenities throughout North America while providing an on-going revenue stream to public entities.
The firm has served as solicitation/procurement Request for Proposal process manager for government agencies (e.g. Illinois Toll Highway Authority, Oklahoma Turnpike Authority, and Florida’s Turnpike) as well as Proposal Manager to leading private sector companies interested in entering or expanding their position in this growing non-traditional market segment.
AJW+A is also a leading proponent of commercialized rest areas which would permit government agencies to offer motorist services to enhance safety to offset the challenges of limited or decreased funding to maintain these roadside amenities.
