Hundreds of people die every year when pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, and occupants of passenger vehicles go under trucks. It can happen to anyone -- even if their car has a 5-Star Safety Rating -- like it happened to:
Families of underride victims & safety advocates are calling for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to end decades of debate and issue underride regulations. Sign this petition & tell the Secretary of Transportation, Peter Buttigieg, to issue a new rule requiring trailer manufacturers to install side underride guards on all new trucks.
Engineers know how to solve this problem. Give them a green light to get the job done! Together we can make truck crashes more survivable.
