Advocacy

Truck Safety Coalition Victories:

We have been working to prevent truck crash deaths and injuries for 30+ years. Here are a few of our notable successes.To learn about our current policy efforts, go to Get Educated.

Reflective Tape on Trucks

Led the effort to require all trailers be equipped with reflective tape to reduce underride crashes.

Electronic Logging Devices

We championed a requirement for electronic logging devices (ELDs) to prevent cheating in driving logbooks.

Stop Truck Size and Weight Increases

We are a consistent force in stopping the repeated attempts to increase truck size and weight, including the spread of double 33-foot trailers in every state.

Hours of Service

We repeatedly thwart attacks on federal hours-of-service (HOS) rules which dictate working hours for truck drivers.

Safety Technology Legislation

Worked successfully with legislators to mandate a federal rule requiring automatic emergency braking (AEB) as standard equipment for large trucks (Class 7 & 8) and upgrading the current federal performance standard for rear underride trailer guards in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) recently enacted into law.

Resist Teen Trucking

TSC has repeatedly thwarted efforts to allow unfettered interstate teen trucking. Presently, we are forcefully opposing a Teen Trucking Pilot program authorized by the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act.
