Institutional Issues Affecting the Implementation of IVHS Technologies to Commercial Vehicle Operations in the State of Indiana


1993
Statewide,Indiana,United States; Monroe County,Florida,United States


Summary Information

Based upon the Florida study of the Advantage I-75 operational field test of IVHS-CVO, it was determined that IVHS-CVO could save $1.59 per reduced weight station stop, $0.864 per reduced minute idling, and capture lost motor-carrier revenue at a rate of $0.882 per reduced minute of delay. Using these values for Indiana, total savings for a 65 mi/h WIM mainline by-pass would be $267.8 million, $231.2 million for a 40 mi/h WIM offline sorting, and $137.2 million for a 20 mi/h WIM offline sorting. Also from the Florida study, the median truck accident rate at all the weigh stations was 92.25 accidents per 100 million truck-miles of travel, much lower than the national average of 219. A potential maximum annual safety savings of $3.8 million is estimated for Indiana. Typical state benefits of $3.6 to 5.5 million and typical motor carrier benefits of $17.7 to 53.0 million could be realized from uniformity in compliance requirements with AVI. Indiana could also gain $22.1 million annually from additional violation citations brought about by better enforcement.
