J.B. Hunt has made considerable investments in safety over the past 20 years. Safety is a core value and part of our corporate culture. It just has to be. We share the road with millions of people across the country every day, and our livelihood depends on keeping those roads as safe as possible for everyone on them. In addition to complying with industry-relevant laws and mandates, J.B. Hunt makes its contribution to public road safety in a variety of ways — driver training, drug testing, and investing in technologies that make drivers and equipment safer.
Public safety is further promoted through smart purchasing decisions. As new safety technologies are made available, we carefully evaluate each to determine the overall impact and benefit they could bring to our drivers, trucks, and hauling equipment. J.B. Hunt is currently in the process of replacing some of its trailers with one of these newly introduced technologies — the RIG-16 Rear Underride Guard System. Engineered to prevent underride in multiple offset or overlap impact scenarios, the guard reduces the risk of injury or death for individuals involved in an accident with the rear of a trailer. And forward collision warning systems have already been deployed on most of our Class 8 tractors. These systems assist drivers in avoiding rear-end collisions and help lessen the severity of rear-end accidents if they occur.
