Unsafe Trucks

A National Highway Safety Problem

Whether you drive an 18-wheeler or are one of the millions of Americans that use our roads on a daily basis, our website is designed to empower you to take action to prevent needless accidents and deaths due to unsafe trucks. We provide information about proper truck safety and warn about the dangers associated with large trucks when they are not maintained, do not follow the rules, or when their drivers are pushed by unsafe deadlines.

Help Us Make Our Roads Safer

According to the American Trucking Association, there are over 3,000,000 commercial truck drivers and over 500,000 commercial carriers in the United States. The trucking industry is an important part of the American economy. Most of these drivers and carriers are safe, but something must be done to prevent deadly collisions when unsafe trucking companies:

  • Create unrealistic schedules
  • Use unqualified drivers
  • Allow poorly maintained vehicles to cause dangerous conditions on the road
Unsafe Trucks provides information about how the public, including truckers themselves, can influence laws that are created for the trucking industry. When drivers know about safety measures and insist that such laws are enforced, the roads are safer for everyone. Since trucks are regulated by both state and federal laws, Unsafe Trucks will soon provide information specific to your state in addition to federal law information.
