Trailer Safety Week Info
That’s where you come in! Please help NATM communicate crucial how-to information regarding proper towing, loading and maintenance to improve the safety of the nation’s roadways. End-users are vastly undereducated on the proper use of trailers. It is crucial to utilize the connections that dealers and manufacturers have with consumers to increase safety and awareness.
NATM surveyed trailer dealers across the country to understand what resources and information are needed. Using the dealer’s feedback, NATM developed resources and materials to help end-users determine if their tow vehicle and trailer combination are correct for their haul, how to properly hitch equipment, loading fundamentals, basic maintenance requirements and driving tips.
NATM wants to team up with trailer dealerships to get this important information into the hands of the end-users. NATM created a website dedicated solely to educating end-users about trailer safety, www.TrailerSafetyWeek.com. This website houses all of the information discussed above and serves as a useful and convenient tool for trailer dealers to pass along to end-users.
In addition to resources found on the Trailer Safety Week website, trailer dealers and manufacturers have the opportunity to attend various events held in Pennsylvania. During these events, dealers will learn about the NATM Compliance Verification Program and the importance of trailers being built to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. In addition, attendees will learn about the resources available for dealers to offer end-users. Copies of NATM’s Trailer Safety Handbook will be distributed, as well as key chains that feature the NATM Trailer Safety Week website for dealers to give to their end-users.
More information regarding Trailer Safety Week will be made available in the following weeks via NATM’s monthly e-News and direct mail correspondence.
