A new Stoughton Trailers advertising campaign highlights the story of Terry S. Rivet and Mark Robinson, accident survivors in Rochester, N.Y., who might not be alive if the tractor-trailer their vehicle ran into hadn't been protected with the company's newly designed rear underride guard.
"Early morning on March 2, we found our car headed toward the rear corner of a tractor-trailer that had slip and jack knifed on a snowy, slippery I-90," Rivet said. "But thankfully the rear underride guard on the Stoughton trailer prevented our car from sliding underneath the trailer."
Stoughton Trailers added the rear underride guard in late 2016 to all its dry van trailers without any added weight or cost. The guard resists compartmental intrusion of a vehicle when the impact is at the trailer's rear corners.
