TMA Trucks Save Lives
TMA (Truck Mounted Attenuator) trucks are built to save lives. These trucks are intended to absorb the impact of a high (or low) speed crash. Traditionally, they’ve been used to protect construction workers in highway work zones by acting as a barrier between workers and the traveling public. They’re engineered to decrease damage to the vehicle, prevent the worker from being struck, and absorb impact to take the force off of the impacting driver. In fact, most drivers walk away uninjured from a TMA crash even at speeds as high as 60mph!
While these trucks have become a requirement for work zones according to regulation in many states across the U.S., they’re just now being recognized for their potential to protect and save lives in traffic incident management. We’re proud to take part in this new movement to protect first responders.
