Road Safe America's vision for our country's
The drivers of large commercial vehicles, we believe, have at least as much responsibility for the safety of the public as do airline pilots. After all, we buy tickets to voluntarily get on commercial aircraft. However, all of us share the public roadways on a daily basis with professional drivers, operating 80,000 pound vehicles, all around us. Therefore, our belief is that professional truck drivers, who provide vital services to our overall economy, should be trained more like airline pilots, be healthy more like airline pilots, rested more like airline pilots and paid more like airline pilots. We will work toward that vision tirelessly.
