The program is unique in that it not only seeks to educate passenger vehicle drivers about how to drive safely near trucks, but it also focuses on maximizing the trucking industry’s understanding and compliance with safety laws and regulations. The general public outreach effort centers on a highly visible “No Zone” campaign which features a dozen wrapped trailers, including one tank trailer, and the distribution of “No Zone” brochures.
In addition to the wrapped truck trailers, at least one thousand back door decals and one thousand sets of mud flaps emblazoned with the “Be Safe-Share the Space” logo will be distributed throughout North Carolina’s trucking industry to help get keep the message in the public eye. 150,000 sixty-page NC Commercial Motor Vehicle Information Guides have been printed as a comprehensive tool to help motor carriers and truck drivers stay abreast of current operating requirements
Addressed issues include registration requirements, inspections, weights and dimensions, hazardous materials, and insurance requirements, among others. Additionally, the truck wraps and the printed materials direct truckers to visit NCTA’s website, www.nctrucking.com, to access safety information.
