Placing Profits Before Public Safety
Federal law limits the number of hours that truck drivers are allowed to work. This is done for safety purposes in order to make sure drivers are alert enough to make safe decisions behind the wheel.
Unfortunately, trucking companies do not make a profit when their drivers are not out on the road shipping goods. This leads to placing pressure on drivers to cut corners, placing people’s lives at risk in the pursuit of profits.
In addition to the profit motive, a number of factors can contribute to truck accidents, including:
- Driver negligence
- Lack of driver training
- Improper truck maintenance
- Defective truck parts
