I have noticed back from the 146 series, no one has attempted to fit thrust reversers on them. I know they are already considered STOL, but couldn't T/Rs help shorten the landing distance for those planes, especially if they were fitted to all four engines.

There are no thrustreversers on the RJ.
You have the airbrakes at the tail of the plane.
They give you the same deceleration, but with one advantage: you can pull them at any speed in flight as well! I don't know many planes capable of using T/R in flight... (DC-8 could on the inner engines during steep descents, but that's all as far as I know.)
