Hundreds of thousands of tractor-trailers travel U.S. highways every day, and they do so in a professional and safe manner.
However, those safe trucking professionals are often edged from the spotlight by the most dangerous.
Case in point, check out this recent quote from National Transportation Safety Board member Dr. Robert Molloy:
“I’d like to live in a world where everybody cared about safety, but that’s not the world of trucking,” he said.
The reality is that the motor carriers who choose to disregard regulations and put others on the road at risk are not indicative of the trucking industry as a whole. The majority of truck drivers and motor carriers want those fleets off the highway just as much as any safety board.
