Our main focus is keeping our state moving, while keeping our roads and highways safe. The Risk and Safety Management Council host safety meeting every 3rd Tuesday of the month. These meetings are very informative often touching on new regulations, best practices and technology.
Trucks transported 81.14 percent of total manufactured tonnage in the state in 2005 or 498,785 tons per day. Over 89.2 percent of communities depend exclusively on trucks to move their goods.
