Making Roadways Safer One Trailer at a Time

Blog ,

The National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) is gearing up for the fourth annual national Trailer Safety Week to be held June 6-12, 2021! 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. This weeklong celebration is the perfect opportunity to share some safe trailering tips with your community.

The truth is 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. We recognize we wouldn’t buy a car without key safety features, such as seatbelts, but purchasing a trailer with missing safety components can be just as dangerous. 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. Visit www.TrailerSafetyWeek.com to access these materials and more! 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.

We encourage you to join the hundreds of companies, associations and end-users already celebrating Trailer Safety Week! If you are part of an organization that would like to further support Trailer Safety Week, visit www.TrailerSafetyWeek.com/interest to sign up as a Trailer Safety Ally.
