LaMont Byrd, Director of the Teamsters Safety and Health Department, spoke to press this morning along with highway safety advocates and the colleagues and families of those killed in truck crashes:

I join with other safety-minded groups and these brave families who have suffered such personal loss, to lend the Teamsters voice in denouncing the roll back of critical safety measures through the actions of the House Appropriations Committee and call upon the Senate to not go down this same dangerous path.

Over 600,000 of our 1.4 million members start their workday by turning a key in a vehicle; and whether they drive a school bus, a UPS van, or an 18-wheeler, our nationís highways and local roads serve as their workplace.
