Wisconsin Bill Would Encourage Drivers To Slow Down Around Garbage Trucks
"Driving safely should be the top priority for anyone getting behind the wheel of a vehicle," said NSWMA President and CEO Sharon H. Kneiss. "This kind of legislation may make someone more careful next time they pass by a garbage truck. We want all our sanitation workers to come home every day, safe and sound.
NSWMA has championed safety for years. It's Slow Down to Get Around national campaign reminds motorists to drive more carefully near solid waste collection vehicles. Motorists are often distracted while driving and frequently crash into collection employees or vehicles—sometimes with fatal consequences.
