The LTCCS data were collected at 24 representative locations across the United States. Analysis of these data indicated that 80 to 90 percent of recorded crashes were associated with driver related factors or driver error. Countermeasures were estimated to have helped or prevented 52 percent of truck versus light vehicle crashes and 70 percent of truck versus non-motorist crashes. These target populations provided the information needed to calculate system effectiveness.
