Commercial Vehicles

Each year, thousands die in accidents involving large trucks, buses and emergency vehicles. It is important for everyone to understand laws and safety issues related to large vehicles, how these drivers see road conditions and how they maneuver.

To help all drivers share the road safely, AAA has created a national safety campaign, Share with Care. I addition to raising awareness and providing education, AAA is also working to ensure federal guidelines for the trucking industry protect all motorists.
