KEEPING HIGHWAYS SAFE FROM TRUCKING ACCIDENTS

The Las Cruces Sun News recently ran an article on all the work the New Mexico Motor Transportation Police do to keep trucks safe on the highway and reduce the number of trucking accidents.

Trucking accidents are a complex problem and have many causes that the state authorities try to combat through policing.

To prevent accidents these officers: check the truck weight, check the driver's log, look for unsecured loads, look for problems like cracked tires and more that can cause or contribute to a trucking accidents.

Some truck drivers are resistant to the necessary regulation and try to get away with everything possible, while others are thankful.

In the Las Cruces Sun News article, Lt. Jenine Trujillo with the New Mexico Motor Transport Police remembers a truck driver early in her career. She found a cracked wheel when inspecting his truck. The relieved driver told her, "You may have saved my life."

Besides the efforts of law enforcement, civil lawsuit by personal injury lawyers help ensure the trucking system is held accountable. When an accident is caused by driver or trucking company error, the victim of those accidents depends on the legal system for help. But in addition to help to the victim, the legal system can help ensure that dangerous conditions are stopped.
