Interstate Trucking Collisions

Each year over 110,000 people are injured in trucking collisions on our highways. Over 5,000 more are killed. Many of these collisions are avoidable - the result of truck drivers driving beyond their allowed hours of service or other safety violations. Driver fatigue has been proven to increase the likelihood of accidents which hurt and kill innocent people.  Add to this unsafe equipment and other violations, and you have a recipe for disaster, playing out on our highways every day.
