Petition asks NHTSA to require more lighting on tractor-trailers

Two years after two people were killed in a truck-involved crash, a petition is requesting the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to require more lighting on tankers and tractor-trailers.

In October 2018, Leslie Rosenberg and her 19-year-old daughter, Sophie, were driving down an unlit Texas highway at night. The minivan crashed into a tanker truck that had pulled onto the highway. According to a petition released by Rosenberg’s sister, Cathy Forman, the minivan drove straight into the tanker without any attempt to stop as the woman never saw the truck.
