Just as auto makers are moving toward safer vehicles, major truck manufacturers are also trying to make their trucks safer. Each year nearly 4,000 people are killed and over 100,000 are injured in commercial vehicle accidents. This push toward safety is welcome news for the Louisiana families who have lost loved ones to truck accidents.
Drivers of commercial vehicles have a special responsibility not only to other drivers on the road, but also to their passengers. Large commercial vehicles, like Greyhound buses, are a common source of transportation for many Americans. Driver fatigue and other distractions, however, can lead to deadly consequences for operators of these vehicles.
