Professor Miller recently had his article “Discrete Time Hazard Modeling of Large Motor Carriers’ Longitudinal Safety Performance” accepted for publication in the Transportation Journal.

“Multiple stakeholders have a vested interest in motor carrier safety because it affects the welfare of the general public and companies’ supply chain operations. In this manuscript I devise new theory about motor carrier safety by utilizing processes from attention-based theory and new institutional theory to answer questions regarding carrier safety since the rollout of the Compliance, Safety, and Accountability (CSA) program. Specifically, I examine the propensity that motor carriers flagged for poor performance on hours-of-service (HOS) compliance when the program was fully implemented in late 2010 exited this status at least once during the subsequent 3.5 years. Conversely, I examine whether motor carriers not flagged for poor HOS performance at the start of the program come to receive a safety warning at least once during the subsequent 3.5 years. I further examine how carrier size affects these respective hazard rates.”

Congratulations, Professor Miller!
