TRAA has answered the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Roadway Safety Strategy “call to action” on behalf of the nation's towing and recovery industry. The campaign is part of the agency's multiyear plan launched in 2022 to reduce serious injuries and deaths on our Nation's highways, roads, and streets using a Safe System Approach.
As an Ally-in-Action, TRAA is committed to promoting the Post-Crash Care and Safer People elements of the National Roadway Safety Strategy (NRSS) by:
- Encouraging participation in the Federal Highway Administration's National Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Responder Training to increase safety of roadside responders and prevent secondary crashes.
- Promoting Slow Down Move Over Law awareness and enforcement to reduce the risk of injuries and deaths incurred by the nation's traffic incident management partner disciplines.
- Supporting the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's many annual campaigns to encourage safe, responsible driving and behavior by roadway users.
TRAA is proud to join with the Department of Transportation and other private and public partners to support our shared goal of reducing deaths and injuries on our nation's roadways.
