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.  Of course, technological advancements may pose additional hazards.  It goes without saying that an 18-wheeler must yield to other cars on the roadway.  18-wheelers pose significant risks on the roadway.
