Truck Accidents Archives

Commercial vehicle accident rates continue to rise - Part I

It can be truly discouraging when progress is not being made in regards to important issues. Americans expect our lawmakers, medical researchers, scientists, educators and a host of other professionals to make steady progress towards improving the common good. And perhaps there is no greater expectation of progress than that placed upon safety regulators. When ensuring the safety of the public is a safety agency’s primary task, Americans expect steady progress towards that goal.

Are more truck drivers driving while drowsy?

Have you seen more truck drivers yawning while driving lately? Earlier this month, the president signed into law the most recent federal appropriations bill. Many lawmakers took advantage of several political and timing opportunities provided by this bill’s process and tucked pet projects into the depths of the law. One of these pet projects advanced by Sen. Susan Collins involves rolling back certain trucking regulations initiated by the Department of Transportation in the summer of 2013.

Why underride safety remains a critical issue

Perhaps you have never driven while drunk. You take great care to never get behind the wheel while you are drowsy and you never use your cellphone while you are driving. You even refuse to drive when you are upset or otherwise mentally distracted. Even if you are the kind of motorist that everyone should model themselves after, you may one day find yourself barreling towards the rear of a large commercial truck without enough time to safely avoid impact. Due to brake failure, icy roads or some other factor, you cannot stop the accident that is about to occur.
