The National Tank Truck Carriers and the American Trucking Associations have released a new "Cargo Tank Driver Rollover Prevention Video," designed to help drivers reduce rollover incidents.

"Although rollovers are rare, we recognize that they can be serious," said John Conley, NTTC president. "This outreach video is part of our proactive commitment to work with the government or anyone else in improving truck safety and minimizing the risk of such incidents."

The video, produced in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Transportation, features several experienced tank truck drivers educating other drivers about the contributing factors of rollovers and steps drivers can take to prevent future incidents.

"We were pleased to have the opportunity to work so closely with the government safety community, and are proud of the important driver training video that resulted from this successful collaboration," said Bill Graves, ATA president and CEO.

This video is the latest in a series of actions NTTC has taken to improve safety in the tank truck sector of the industry. For more than three years, NTTC has convened rollover prevention summits and reached out to drivers with posters and other publicity in an effort to raise safety awareness.
