Truck drivers, companies can prevent jackknifes

Any vehicle is prone to jackknifing to some degree, a jackknife is, after all, the end result of a skid, or a situation in which a vehicle's tires are no longer gripping but instead sliding across the road. Still, jackknifes are most pronounced, and obvious, in trucks, as they mean the trailer of the truck will head in one direction while the cab will continue along in the original direction of the vehicle.

Driving while too tired is similar to driving drunk

A previous post on this blog discussed how federal regulators have put in to place rules that limit how long truckers subject to their jurisdiction can stay on the road before pulling over for several hours so that they can rest and, hopefully, get some sleep. The reason behind these rules are to prevent truckers from driving while too fatigued to do so safely.

How federal hours of service rules can help injured victims

Many truckers who travel through the Las Vegas area are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), an agency which oversees interstate truckers at the federal level. These regulations are usually aimed at preventing accidents and improving safety on the country's roadways.

Trucking safety rules face bumpy road

Proposed regulations requiring speed-limiting devices on trucks have stalled after the White House imposed a stay on most new federal regulations. The Department of Transportation previously estimated that the proposal would prevent deaths from trucking accidents and lower $1 billion in fuel costs each year.
