Our main focus is keeping our state moving, while keeping our roads and highways safe. The Risk and Safety Management Council host safety meeting every 3rd Tuesday of the month. These meetings are very informative often touching on new regulations, best practices and technology.
In 2005, the trucking industry in Kentucky paid approximately $751 million in federal and state roadway taxes and fees. The industry paid 46.4 percent of all taxes and fees owned by Kentucky motorists, despite trucks representing only 13.7 percent of vehicle miles traveled in the state.
