With this traffic safety campaign, the association hopes to improve the safety of the nation’s roadways by raising trailer safety awareness through education of trailer end-users, dealers and manufacturers. The goal is to close the communication gap between trailer manufacturers and end-users to make towing safer.
Most end-users are “vastly undereducated” on the proper use of trailers—and with millions of trailers traversing the nation’s roadways every day, safe trailering practices are life-saving, NATM notes. It is crucial that trailers are being towed safely for the sake of everyone on the roads.
NATM makes it easy to learn about safe trailering practices. From driving tips to trailer maintenance and components, the Trailer Safety Week website provides need-to-know information regarding trailer safety in an easy-to-understand format.
The website houses the Safely Towing Brochure which contains important information on hitching, cargo securement, tires, driving tips and the importance of purchasing NATM compliant trailers. It is free, easily accessible and mobile friendly.
Members of any organization that would like to further support Trailer Safety Week should visit www.TrailerSafetyWeek.com/interest to sign up as a Trailer Safety Ally. An Ally will receive a pre-crafted marketing kit to promote the involvement in TSW and share safe trailering practices.
