Congressman Yakym Introduces Resolution in Support of “National Trailer Safety Week”

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Rudy Yakym (IN-02) introduced H. RES. 467, a resolution expressing support for the designation of June 4-10, 2023 as “National Trailer Safety Week” in the United States. Representatives John Garamendi (D-CA) and Tim Burchett (R-TN) joined Yakym in introducing the resolution.

“I am proud to lead this bipartisan resolution to bring increased awareness about trailer safety,” said Congressman Yakym. “Manufacturers in Indiana’s Second District make a wide range of trailers, whether towable RVs, cargo trailers, horse trailers, and more. Promoting proper towing techniques is an important way to ensure everyone can continue to enjoy the benefits of trailers and help make our roadways safer for all Americans.”

“With more than one million new trailers registered every year, it is imperative that end-users become more knowledgeable about safe towing practices,” said Alex Stowe, National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) Executive Director. “It is crucial to raise awareness of proper towing techniques and maintenance for the sake of everyone on the nation’s roadways. NATM has put a spotlight on these concerns through its nationwide Trailer Safety Week, the first ever traffic safety intervention dedicated to light- and medium-duty trailer usage.”
