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, including their tires.  Safe companies must also supervise their driver to ensure that the company’s policies and procedures have been followed.  It goes without saying that the driver of an 18-wheeler must be aware of other vehicles on the roadway.  An 18-wheeler must also yield to oncoming traffic.
