THE CHALLENGE AND OUR COMMITMENT

Over the past ten years, the truck fatality rate has been significantly lowered, but still, about 5,000 people die in truck crashes every year. There is enormous personal loss for victims and their families associated with these statistics

This broad agenda will involve the integrated and coordinated efforts of the Federal Highway Administration, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Research and Special Programs Administration, the Federal Transit Administration, the Federal Railroad Administration, and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. Actions that will be considered include:
