New Safety Campaign from FMCSA Focused on Sharing the Road with Large Trucks

The campaign, called "Our Roads, Our Responsibility," will raise public awareness about how to operate safely around large trucks and buses.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced in a newsletter its launch of "Our Roads, Our Responsibility," a safety-focused campaign meant to raise awareness about how to operate around large trucks and buses on the road.

"Trucks and buses move people and goods around the country, contributing to our economic well-being and our way of life," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. "These commercial vehicles also carry additional safety risks, so it’s critical that all road users understand how to safely share the road."

The agency has offered the following tips on how to safely share the road: Stay out of the "no zones" or blind spots of the vehicle, pass safely and make sure you can see the driver in the mirror before passing, don't cut it close when merging, and other tips.

"Our Roads, Our Responsibility supports our agency's core mission of reducing crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving commercial motor vehicles on our roadways," said FMCSA Administrator Scott Darling. "Roadway safety is a shared responsibility, and this initiative encourages everyone who uses our roads to be champions for safety. We look forward to working with all our partners to raise awareness around this issue."
