Associate Research Fellow Named Chair of Safety Committee

Posted: Jan 31, 2012

Brenda Lantz, associate research fellow with NDSU's Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI), will become chair of the Transportation Research Board's Truck and Bus Safety Committee in April. The Transportation Research Board is one of six major divisions of the National Research Council.

The Truck and Bus Safety Committee focuses on motor carrier safety, particularly research and evaluation related to human, roadway, vehicle, operational, and organizational issues. Members of the committee work to keep other professionals informed of current research, stimulate new research and development and review and recommend papers for the Transportation Research Board's annual meeting.

Lantz is program director of the UGPTI's Transportation Safety Systems Center in Lakewood, Colo. The center develops and maintains software used by commercial vehicle safety specialists nationwide. She has more than 20 years of experience in transportation research at the institute, with much of that experience focused on commercial vehicle safety.
