About the Our Roads, Our SafetyⓇ Campaign

Road safety is everyone’s responsibility - passenger vehicle drivers, truck drivers, bus drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) developed Our Roads, Our Safety, a national safety campaign to encourage road users to share the road safely with large trucks and buses. Watch the video below to see the highlights of what the campaign offers and visit our campaign resources to download these materials for your own promotion of safety messages.

Nearly every possession we own and almost all the food we eat are brought to our local store or warehouse by truck. Perhaps you have ridden on a bus between cities or as part of a group to a national park or other attraction. Over fourteen million large trucks and buses (also known as commercial motor vehicles or CMVs) are registered to operate on America's roadways and play a critical role in helping move our nation's economy and transporting our loved ones.

It’s easy to think all vehicles operate like cars. But trucks and buses are much more difficult to maneuver, have massive blind spots, and take far longer to stop. Awareness of these differences, and some simple adjustments can help everyone using the roads and keep us all as safe as possible.

The Our Roads, Our Safety campaign supports FMCSA’s mission of reducing crashes, injuries and fatalities involving large trucks and buses. As part of this effort, FMCSA partners with other organizations to educate all drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians on the importance of sharing the road.

The more we understand each other’s road experience, the better we can look out for one another.  FMCSA’s Our Roads, Our Safety campaign provides unique points of view across the full range of road users.
