The North Dakota State University (NDSU), Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) is planning to host the third Western Regional Commercial Vehicle Safety Summit. The Summit will be co-hosted with the Colorado State Patrol.

This Summit will focus on efforts to reduce distracted driving by commercial vehicle drivers and others operating around commercial vehicles, and to improve commercial vehicle safety in work zones. It will bring together representatives from law enforcement, driver licensing agencies, universities, and industry to share State best practices, resources, and partnerships. It will also include FMCSA updates, discussions of hot topics, and emerging trends.

Each state and territory in the FMCSA Western Service Center region has been contacted to determine current projects and partnerships, topics of interest, and innovative approaches they have implemented. The agenda is being developed based on these inputs.
