Together For Safer Roads announces safety standards initiative

TSR recently launched a Truck of the Future pilot program with vehicles from New York City that identifies and tests solutions to eliminate collisions.

Together for Safer Roads (TSR), a company focused on building cross-sector partnerships to improve fleet trucking safety around the world, announces the launch of the Fleet Trucking Global Safety Standards Initiative. The company notes that this global undertaking, which will develop a set of shared fleet trucking safety standards and is said to have the potential to save tens of thousands of lives over the next several decades, launched just before the 7th Annual UN Global Road Safety Week got underway. 

TSR’s recent projects include a Truck of the Future pilot program with vehicles from New York City that identifies and tests solutions to eliminate collisions between large vehicle operators and vulnerable road users; later this year the company says this pilot will expand internationally, working with a private sector fleet in Mexico City.
