TRAA Partnering with the University of Alabama on Tow Truck Operator Safety Research

TRAA is proud to announce that we have partnered with the University of Alabama on a research project titled "Identifying Elements for Successful Near-Miss Reporting System". Our goal is to recognize the challenges, barriers, and opportunities for developing a fully adopted near-miss incident reporting system for all roadside responders.
TRAA's commitment to the project includes serving on the Project Expert Panel, circulating survey invitations, and helping coordinate interviews with a focus group of select towing companies. The existing Towing Traffic Incident Reporting System (TTIRS) created by the Statewide Towing Association (STA) of Massachusetts is also being reviewed as part of the project.
This important research is grant funded by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.
