Stop Bigger Trucks: For road safety | The Truck Safety Coalition

Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

They’re coming: bigger, longer, heavier, deadlier trucks. Unless Congress and state legislatures take action now, these trucks will threaten more American lives and damage more of the streets, bridges, and highways we travel every day.

StopBiggerTrucks.org is sponsored by the Truck Safety Coalition — the only truck safety advocacy group comprised of truck crash survivors, as well as families and friends of those who have died as a result of these preventable tragedies. We are the only national organization dedicated solely to improving public policy on all aspects of motor carrier safety issues — the vehicle, the driver, and the roadway environment.

In 2002, Citizens for Reliable and Safe Highways (CRASH) and Parents Against Tired Truckers (P.A.T.T.) combined efforts to form the Truck Safety Coalition. Our mission: Reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by truck-related crashes; provide compassionate support to truck crash survivors and families of truck crash victims; and educate the public, government leaders, and the media about truck safety issues.

By working with other safety groups and partners that share our mission and goals, we strive to advance policies and programs that improve truck safety for everyone, as well as protect our highways and bridges from further destruction by giant, overweight trucks. We also support strong enforcement of motor carrier rules to curtail disregard for current safety regulations.
