SC&R Foundation fund research on pilot car rules

19 March 2008

The SC&R Foundation is funding a new project to provide research and comparative analysis of existing pilot car requirements and training guidelines within states served by the Southeastern Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (SASHTO).

Specialized carriers moving equipment and freight requiring pilot car services in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi now encounter inconsistent requirements marked by lack of uniformity in training and certification. Moreover, the industry has been victimized by unpredictable operational quality and variable enforcement operations in these states.

The underlying goal of this research is to help the SC&RA maintain its established leadership role in state implementation of uniform pilot car training programs. SC&RA's program, prepared in cooperation with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance under a grant from the Federal Highway Administration, already is being used in part or in its entirety for a number of programs being established or refined throughout the United States.
