The Dept. of Transportation is inviting truck drivers to try connected commercial vehicle technology and let officials know what they think about it.  Two driver clinics to test the technology will be held this summer, one in Ohio in July and the other in California in August.

Interested truckers will go to a test track where special trucks equipped with connected vehicle technology will be available to test.  Drivers will participate in a question and answer period, and then spend about one-half hour driving one of the trucks through a series of carefully planned scenarios to demonstrate the new technology.  Afterward, drivers will be asked what they like and what they don’t like about it.  DOT will pay participating truckers for their time, and will give them a gas card to reimburse them for their travel.
