Trucking industry seeking input on northern highway safety

The Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) says truck drivers move the economy and their voices need to be heard when decision-makers consider infrastructure improvements and highway safety in the north.  

A survey is available on the association’s website as the group looks for input from trucking companies and drivers about the issues and what they believe the solutions should be. 

“The calls and emails to OTA continue to increase from fleets that truck drivers have concerns about deteriorating highway safety conditions across Northern Ontario,” says James Steed, OTA Chair. “The survey seeks feedback from drivers on the challenges at hand; what is working, what is not, and what drivers’ thoughts are on the necessary solutions.” 

He adds input from professional drivers and fleets who operate through Northern Ontario every day is essential for OTA’s Board to develop effective positions. 

The association says survey results will be presented to the Ministry of Transportation and the enforcement community to develop solutions that will improve highway and truck driver safety in the region.
