To reckless and negligent driving by truckers, others on the road are exceptionally vulnerable, due to the speed at which they travel, their blind spots, and the sheer weight and size of the trucks themselves. To properly follow the rules of the road, trucking companies and truck drivers do have a legal responsibility and this also includes proper compliance with federal regulations that are wide-ranging. On one or more of these regulations, trucks that are involved in collisions are very often in violation. Trucking industry regulation is often complex, a lot of different parties can be accountable and it is often very difficult understanding the causes of truck collisions.
