... 5 1.1 Background The objective of HMCRP Project 13, "The Role of Human Factors in Preventing Cargo Tank Truck Rollovers," is to understand root factors and driver influences that are involved in -- and good company practices that seek to mitigate -- the approximately 1,200 cargo tank truck rollovers that occur each year in the United States. The risks and stakes are high with cargo tank trucks: liquid contents subject the vehicle to higher centrifugal forces than general cargo, leaving the driver with a smaller margin of error.
