Poor Truck Maintenance

Trucking companies owe a duty of care to the public before they introduce big rigs, semitrailers, flat beds or any other type of truck into traffic. There are too many risks involved when cars and trucks occupy the same streets and highways. This is why there are rules, regulations and laws about many aspects of truck driving, including:

  • Trucks should be inspected on a regular basis
  • Cargo loads should be properly secured
  • Truckers should be screened and monitored properly
  • Drivers should not drive while impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Regular truck maintenance should be done on schedule
  • Drivers should not drive when they are fatigued
