Road safety is everyone's responsibility—passenger vehicle drivers, truck drivers, bus drivers, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and even pedestrians. We must all remember that we all have different safety challenges when traveling on our roads. Blind spots, long stopping distances, and wide turns are just a few of those challenges to remember. Be a part of our plan to share the road safely. 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.
