Truck-Involved Accidents Greater Risk For Drivers
Did you know that there's no federally mandated training required to drive a truck? Even a big rig? And now we're learning that plans to implement training and safety guidelines have been put on hold! The federal agency responsible for regulating the trucking industry has delayed the newly passed "entry driver training ruler" until 2022. So, we have more trucks on the road than ever, more untrained drivers, and the federal government has just put the brakes on a congressional mandate to fix the problem! We already know the number of fatalities related to big rig accidents is on the rise, and it's a pretty good bet, this delay, is likely to increase the number of truck accidents across the nation, It's not just the number of truck accidents that's concerning - it's the severity. A massive truck versus a standard motor vehicle is just not a fair fight... most of the time, the occupants in the vehicle are the ones who are killed.
