Bendix updates safety position paper

Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems has updated its Highway Safety Position Paper. In the paper, Bendix identifies four areas as vital to the improvement of highway safety:

  • Exploration of incentives and regulation — Bendix and Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC — the company's joint venture with Dana Corp — support incentives, comprehensive testing, and mandates that lead to the adoption of the advanced technologies that help prevent accidents.

  • Engagement of the insurance industry — Industry estimates show that large-truck accidents involving injury can cost an average of more than $200,000 per event, while those involving fatalities result in an average of more than $3 million. The insurance industry can play a key role in preventing accidents and driving down these costs.

  • Support of driver education, technician training, and problem identification — More frequent and continuous education and awareness programming can help identify and correct brake issues throughout the year, helping to prevent brake-related accidents.

  • Development of advanced safety technologies — Bendix develops the heavy-truck safety technologies that can dramatically enhance highway safety.
