Accidents involving commercial trucks, tractor-trailers, buses and other commercial vehicles often result in much more serious injuries or death due to the larger size and weight of the trucks involved and their inability to be stopped or maneuvered quickly.
In the interest of public safety, interstate trucking company drivers, and owners and operators of other commercial vehicles, are subject to a number of different State and Federal safety regulations that include how much weight a rig can haul, how often drivers are required to take rest breaks, and truck manufacturing and repair quality standards, to name just a few.
