The Share the Road Safely program strives to improve the knowledge of all highway users to minimize the likelihood of a crash with a large truck, and reduce the consequences of those that do occur. Learn what you can do to stay safe, and keep your family safe, on the highway.
Background of the Share the Road Safely Campaign
In January 2000, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) was created to improve commercial vehicle safety on the highways. One of the goals of FMCSA is to reduce the number of deaths resulting from crashes with commercial motor vehicles 41 percent by the year 2008. To help achieve this goal, FMCSA launched the Share the Road Safely Program to educate all drivers and road users about interacting safely in and around large trucks and buses.
