Forward collision avoidance and mitigation (F-CAM) technology is a proven highway safety technology that could and will save countless lives. Unfortunately, after years of study and successful use by leading motor carriers, this technology has yet to be required for commercial motor vehicles. F-CAM technology can prevent or significantly reduce the damages and losses in many truck crashes.
