Nearly 4,000 Americans are killed every year in truck crashes. Click Here to write your U.S. Senators to urge them to oppose legislation that eliminates accountability for trucks and buses when they kill and injure Americans.
Fatal truck crashes often cost over $4.3 million in damages, but an outdated federal law passed in the 1980s only requires truck companies to hold minimum insurance policies for $750,000 to cover the entire crash-no matter how many people are killed or injured. Injured motorists and taxpayers are left to pay the difference.
Next week, the Senate will vote on a transportation spending bill that could include an amendment that would take away the resources the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) needs to increase insurance minimums to meet today’s costs.
Protect our roads, Click Here to tell your Senators why this is a hazard to public safety which should not be included in the bill.
If the truck and bus industries are not accountable, our roads are not safe! Join us in holding them accountable!
Thank you for your support and action!
