TORONTO, Ont. — OTA announced today for National Trucking Week it will give free copies of the Sharing the Road with Trucks video to the first 1,000 people who call.

This video giveaway program coincides with National Trucking Week, which takes place from coast-to-coast from Sept. 6 12. It is held to spotlight the important contributions made by the 400,000 Canadian men and women who keep the country’s freight moving. The event is also an opportunity to promote road safety and road sharing techniques.

"It’s important that all motorists recognize that they can take steps to make the roads safer for everyone who uses them," said David Bradley, president of the Ontario Trucking Association.

The 20-minute video uses live action and computer animated road-sharing scenarios to highlight key tips for road users. The accompanying full colour pocket-sized reference guide can be kept in the car as a quick reminder in the months ahead.

“We recognize that 1,000 copies is a small quantity, but we hope that giving away a few at no cost will prompt individuals who wouldn’t normally be willing to spend money on road safety resource material to obtain a copy,” said Bradley. “The video was produced with various supporters, including: Canadian Trucking Alliance, Ontario Trucking Association, International, Canadian Tire, Valvoline, Eagle One, Honda, Goodyear, Manac, and Bell Mobility.

After the first 1,000 copies are distributed, copies of the video can be purchased for $9.99 each plus applicable taxes and delivery. Institutions and educational facilities may purchase the video with public viewing rights for $19.99 plus applicable taxes and delivery.
