Most crashes involving cars and semi-trucks are caused by car drivers who don’t leave enough space when they pass or merge. We support driver education that teaches how to drive safety around trucks.

[tabs] [tab title=”Program Objectives”]Support law enforcement patrols
We conducted a pilot project for the FMCSA and NHTSA called TACT (Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks) that used law enforcement patrols and driver education to reduce car-truck crashes. We also assisted the Washington State Patrol with a TACT campaign on rural roads.

Educate drivers
TACT projects used road signs, radio ads, banners, rack cards and posters to remind drivers to “Leave more space for trucks.”
