What's Included in a Truck Inspection?
The number of large trucks and truck drivers inspected by safety investigators each year is shockingly inadequate. For years, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and partner state agencies have inspected about 2% of more than 500,000 registered motor carriers for compliance with regulations. As one truck driver recently told a congressional committee, the current system amounts to a "catch me if you can" mentality.
The lack of attention to safety by some companies and drivers leads to thousands of preventable accidents involving large trucks each year, including many fatalities. Negligence on the part of a trucking company or commercial truck driver may be a contributing factor if you are involved in an accident with a large truck.
