Suggested Post: FMCSA’s Our Roads, Our Safety campaign focuses on raising awareness on how to share the road safely with large trucks and buses. The all-new Voices of Safety public service announcements showcase various perspectives and personal experiences from the road. The campaign illustrates some of the challenges that large vehicles face, and some tips for operating safely around them. Check out the voices here, as well as tips for how to share the road safely: http://bit.ly/2LVRDqp. #OurRoads #VoicesOfSafety

Suggested Post: Meet Ingrid. She’s been driving her own truck since 1979 and enjoys seeing our nation’s landscapes through her career. As one of the #VoicesofSafety, she wants you to be aware of the extra stopping distance large trucks and buses require while you’re on the road. Help Ingrid continue the work she loves by sharing #OurRoads safely. http://bit.ly/2LVreJq
Suggested Post: Meet Keith. He’s been driving buses for more than 22 years and logs about 65,000 miles a year on #OurRoads. As one of our #VoicesofSafety, Keith wants you to remember that buses and large trucks have enormous blind spots that make cars, bicyclists, and pedestrians difficult to see. Help make sure everyone makes it back to their families safely. Stay out of blind spots on the road. http://bit.ly/2LVr2tG #VoicesOfSafety
Suggested Post: Meet Ed. He’s been driving cars both personally and professionally for more than 24 years. As one of our #VoicesofSafety, Ed wants you to remember to give plenty of space for large trucks and buses to make their turns.

Suggested Post: Large trucks and buses have huge blind spots. Keep a safe distance from potential blind spots and assume the driver can’t see you! #OurRoads
Suggested Post: Did you know a truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds? That’s 20 to 30 times the weight of a regular vehicle. Because of their weight, it takes trucks an extra long distance to stop. Be smart and don’t cut off your bigger neighbors on the road! #OurRoads
Suggested Post: Commercial vehicles require extra room to turn. If a truck or bus has its turn signal on, never try to squeeze by or get between the vehicle and the curb. #OurRoads
Suggested Post: 31% of fatal crashes in work zones involved at least one large vehicle. Stay alert, be aware of your surroundings, and obey all work zone signs and signals. #OurRoads
