Truck accidents responsible for injuries on Pittsburgh roadways
Many accidents, unfortunately, occur on the streets and highways of Pittsburgh. While some of these accidents involve passenger vehicles, but many of the more serious accidents involve commercial trucks. Truck accidents involving tractor-trailers, cement mixers and coal trucks cause a number of severe injuries and deaths of many people every year.
These types of trucks are responsible for carrying a variety of goods across the country. They are large in size and weigh much more than the average passenger vehicle. The size of these trucks makes them a danger to other drivers on the road. Many of these truck drivers do not take the size of their vehicles into account when driving.
The Department of Transportation has numerous regulations in place specifically for truck drivers and trucking companies. Truck drivers are required to take rest breaks and keep track of their road hours to ensure that they will not fall asleep behind the wheel on their coast-to-coast trips. Goods must be properly secured and truck safety features must be serviced regularly. However, there are many drivers and companies that do not adhere to these rules. As a result, many innocent people suffer.
