Automakers agree to add automatic braking systems by 2022

In a voluntary agreement brokered by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, automobile manufacturers have committed to including automatic emergency braking systems on almost all vehicles by 2022. As these safety systems become more common, motorists in Georgia could expect to see a reduction in rear-end crashes.

New rule could impact Georgia truck drivers

On March 7, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration was scheduled to propose a new rule that would require core training for drivers before getting their commercial driver's license. The Entry Level Driver Training rule is now subject to a 60-day comment period before it would then be submitted to the DOT and the Office of Management and Budget. If the rule is approved, it would take effect three years after being published in the Federal Register.
