Thank you for signing the AnnaLeah & Mary Stand Up For Truck Safety Petition. Along with over 11,000 people, you helped to send a strong message to the Department of Transportation: Changes are needed in truck safety issues in order to stop the senseless, preventable deaths which occur year after year on the roads of our country.
