Growing Fatalities Call for Better Maintenance

Rising fatalities involving commercial trucks has led the National Transportation Safety Board to strongly recommend more stringent maintenance schedules. Trucking companies with poor records were specifically asked earlier this year to address their brake systems with vigilance. The NTSB believes that more frequent maintenance will significantly affect the recent and tragic trend.

While there are some crashes that cite mechanical failure as the sole cause, these statistics are misleading because nearly every crash is caused by factors in conjunction with mechanical failure. For example, trucks are designed to handle poor weather, and drivers are trained to handle their machine safely in most weather conditions. It usually takes these factors and mechanical failure to lead to a crash.
