RESOLUTION



        A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION urging the establishment of an interim study committee to study the issue of vehicle crashes involving commercial motor vehicles.

Whereas, Indiana's location in the heartland of the United States and as the Crossroads of America has led to a large amount of commercial motor vehicle traffic through the state;

    Whereas, As a consequence of this upturn in commercial vehicle traffic, a significant number of serious vehicle crashes involving large commercial vehicles have occurred recently;

    Whereas, Many of these commercial vehicle crashes have resulted in death or serious bodily injury to persons in Indiana;

    Whereas, This upturn of crashes involving commercial vehicles has become a threat to the health and safety of the motoring public in Indiana and appropriate measures to reduce these crashes are necessary; and

    Whereas, The issue of reducing crashes involving commercial motor vehicles requires more in-depth study, which can be accomplished during the interim: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate of the General Assembly

of the State of Indiana, the House of Representatives concurring:




    SECTION 1. That the legislative council is urged to establish in interim study committee to study the issue of vehicle crashes involving commercial motor vehicles.
    SECTION 2. That the committee, if established, shall operate under the direction of the legislative council and that the committee shall issue a final report when directed to do so by the council.
