The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Transportation, was created in January 2000 to improve truck and bus safety on America's highways. Our goal is to reduce the number of deaths and injures in accidents involving trucks and buses by
41 percent by the year 2008. In order to achieve this goal, FMCSA has developed the Share the Road Safely Program to educate drivers on how to drive safely in and around large trucks and buses.
The Share the Road Safely Program target specific safety messages toward everyone who travels on the highway with large trucks and buses. This includes pedestrians, bicyclists, RV drivers, motorcyclists, car drivers, and commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. As a part of the Share the Road Safely Program, the No-Zone Campaign educates drivers about the blind spots, or "No-Zones" around large trucks or buses where entire automobiles seem to "disappear" from the view of truck and bus drivers.
