Since its inception, CTFO has granted over $2.5 million to effective local pro grams serving children throughout Oregon. Crossview Mirrors are about ten inches in diameter, convex, and mounted on the top left rear corner of the box portion of trucks up to eigh-teen-feet long. When purchased in volume the cost is $30 - $50 installed on newly built trucks. During 1984, in four major cities, Federal Express installed rear crossview mirrors on its entire fleet of deliver trucks. After one year the company discovered a 33 percent reduction in backing inci dents. Compared to the millions of dollars paid annually to victims of backing service truck incidents, they have a very positive cost-benefit ra tio. Armed with this information the Norton family is receiving support from transportation safety officials in Oregon and Washington. Safety officials are encouraging the National Highway Transportation Safety Ad ministration to recognize crossview mirror's effectiveness in reducing unintentional preventable injuries and death as well as support federal safety standards calling for cross view mirrors.
