Bill to Limit Commercial Trucks Gains Support

Families and survivors of truck crash fatalities and injuries have joined with the Truck Safety Coalition (TSC) to limit commercial truck size and weight limits by law.

The safety advocates are pushing support for the Safe Highways and Infrastructure Preservation Act (SHIPA), which would freeze current federal truck size and weight limits, close existing loopholes that allow operation of overweight trucks, and establish an enforcement program to ensure accountability.

"Every year more than 4,000 people are slaughtered on our nation's highways while corporate trucking and shipping interests continue to push Congress for heavier trucks," said Joan Claybrook, Chairperson of Citizens for Reliable and Safe Highways (CRASH). "Heavy trucks are deadly, dangerous and destructive. Families are paying with their lives and with their wallets."

Kentucky ranks in the top 15 worst states for truck crash fatalities, based on the most recent data available for 2011. Read the full story here:

Truck crash victims support legislation to freeze truck size and weight limits

Heavier trucks are a safety threat and danger to everyone on American roads. While unsafe driving by both passenger and commercial vehicles can lead to dangers on the road, a commercial truck driver – and the trucking or shipping company he/she is employed by – can be found legally responsible for an injury or fatality if negligence by the driver is proven.

If you feel that unsafe driving factors exhibited by truck drivers led to a major accident which impacted your family’s life, please contact the experienced attorneys of Crandall & Pera Law.
