Research and development for ways to protect road users from deadly underride could and should be part of 21st Century Truck Partnership efforts and the millions of dollars being poured into the Super Truck project.
Here’s the information which I have pulled together on side underride:
- Side Guard Petition Book, Part 1: Side Guard Petition Book Part 1
- Side Guard Petition Book, Part 2: Side Guard Petition Book Part 2
- Side Guard Petition Book, Part 3: Side Guard Petition Book Part 3
- Side Guard Petition Signatures & Comments: end-deadly-side-underride-crashes-mandate-side-guards-on-large-trucks_022417
I have shared this information with multiple individuals and organizations in Washington, DC (DOE, DOT, The Hill, and truck industry leaders). I am trying to organize a meeting, with them all, for when I am in DC next week. It needs to be discussed and moved on quickly. Lives are at stake.
Seems like a no-brainer to me.
