LCV Safety Performance in Alberta

Long Combination Vehicle (LCV)
Safety Performance in Alberta:  1999-2005

Alberta Infrastructure/Transportation commissioned Montufar & Associates to update the LCV Performance in Alberta 1995  to 1998 completed by Woodrooffe & Associates.

The purpose of the study was to analyze the safety performance of  LCVs relative to the safety performance of other vehicles operating on the same network for the period of 1999 to 2005.

The findings of the study indicate that LCVs, as a group, had the lowest collision rate of all vehicle types operating on the LCV network.  This is consistent with the earlier study, LCV Safety Performance in Alberta 1995 to 1998.

Long Combination Vehicle (LCV)
Safety Performance in Alberta:  1995-1998

Alberta Infrastructure/Transportation commissioned Woodrooffe and Associates to undertake an in-depth review of Long Combination Vehicles (LCVs) in Alberta during the period 1995 to 1998.  The goals of the study were to:

  • Determine road safety performance of commercial trucks including LCVs.

  • Determine the contributing factors to collisions involving LCVs.

The results of the study indicate that LCVs have the lowest collision rate of all vehicle class and that Alberta's permit conditions governing the operation of LCVs are a vital influence in the creation of a safe operating environment.
