Safe trucking companies must take adequate precautions to ensure that their drivers do not severely injure or kill members of the public in a trucking accident. Industry standards require trucking companies to regularly inspect their equipment. Safe companies must also supervise their driver to ensure that the company’s policies and procedures have been followed. Drivers must yield to other traffic on the roadway.
