Many tons of cargo are behind the braking and steering systems of an 18-wheeler. An overloaded or improperly loaded truck places extra burdens on these systems, and tires, which can blow out and cause a severe truck crash.
Shifting loads can cause accidents by effecting the driver's ability to steer or control his truck. Falling loads also cause accidents by creating roadway hazards. Often the company that loaded the truck may also be at fault.
Responsibility for Safety
Truck drivers are "professional drivers." You may have seen signs on the back of a trailer saying so and offering a phone number to report dangerous driving. Safety is a responsibility the driver must take seriously. Hiring responsible drivers is a responsibility the employer must take seriously.
