I Pledge to Share the Road

Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers in the United States. Furthermore, a recent Virginia Tech Transportation Research Institute study found that 78 percent of crashes involving commercial motor vehicles were caused by passenger vehicle drivers. Therefore, we are working to educate teens on the importance of sharing the road with large trucks on Virginia roadways through our Share the Road program. Please join our effort to commit to safely share the road with trucks and buses, and help reduce the number of crashes and fatalities that occur each year.

I, , pledge to make Virginia's roadways safer by:

  1. Driving with awareness of and caution toward commercial trucks and buses.
  2. Staying clear of truck and bus blind spots, or "No-Zones."
  3. Allowing ample following distance when driving behind trucks and buses — making sure that I can see a truck driver’s side view mirrors when I am driving behind them.
  4. Merging in front of trucks only when I can see the entire front of the truck, including its tires, in my rearview mirror.
  5. Adjusting my speed and spacing to allow truck drivers to safely merge onto and off of roads.
  6. Stopping my car before stop lines to allow for safer turning of large vehicles.
  7. Watching out for wide turning vehicles.
