The TSA warned the nation’s trucking companies and their drivers to be careful because terrorists are increasingly using stolen trucks worldwide as a method of attack.

The six-page report, obtained by CBS News, indicates that terrorists killed 173 people and injured another 667 in 17 vehicle-ramming attacks worldwide. 

The most deadly vehicle-ramming attack came in Nice, France last year, when at least 84 people were killed by a truck that drove through a crowd celebrating Bastille Day.

The report warns of indicators that suggest terrorists are planning to resort to vehicle-slamming in the U.S.

The American Trucking Association issued this statement to CBS News: “There is no more dedicated, professional and patriotic group of people than truck drivers, so our industry is disturbed by the possibility that someone would use our vehicles as weapons.Much of what is in this TSA guidance – avoiding area of congestion due to special events, exercising awareness of suspicious activity and practicing common sense safety and security habits – are already hallmarks of industry best practices. The commercial trucking industry deploys significant security measures like vehicle tracking, alarms and specialized locks, as well as ongoing driver awareness training and driver vetting.”
