FMCSA Forms New Partnership under Safety Campaign

The American Bus Association, AAA, and the American Trucking Associations have joined FMCSA in the "Our Roads, Our Safety" campaign.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced it has formed a new partnership under its "Our Roads, Our Safety" campaign. The American Bus Association, AAA, and the American Trucking Associations have joined the administration in order to help educate pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers on how to share roadways and improve safety for all.

"FMCSA is pleased to work with a group of partners that are dedicated to safety and share our agency's goal of reducing crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses on the road," said FMCSA Deputy Administrator Daphne Jefferson. "This important partnership amplifies the message that all drivers on the roadway must work together to ensure that everyone arrives safely at their destinations." 

The agency's news release also offered actions passenger vehicles can take when sharing the road with large trucks, such as: staying out of the "No Zones" or blind spots at the front, back, and sides of the vehicle, making sure they can see the other driver in the mirror before safely passing, and not cutting in close when merging in front.

"At ATA, we feel it is our duty to work alongside allies in the highway safety sector to ensure that all safety messages are shaped by the professional truck drivers dedicated to promoting highway safety in their day-to-day operations," said American Trucking Associations Executive Vice President of Industry Affairs and COO Elisabeth Barna. "We are proud to work with ABA, AAA, and FMCSA to spread a common message that whether you are a truck driver, bus driver, or general motorist, we are all responsible for safely sharing our nation's highways."
