Truck brakes must be maintained for safety

Drivers in Pennsylvania have plenty to be concerned about when it comes to the dangers posed by poorly maintained truck brakes and equipment. When a large commercial truck drives with dangerously bad brakes, other drivers, cyclists and pedestrians on the road can pay a high price in case of a crash. Improperly maintained brakes may mean that a truck driver is unable to stop their vehicle at the right time, and with the size, weight and mass of 18-wheelers, the results can be catastrophic or even fatal. This is one reason the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance is organizing Brake Safety Week.

How sanitation employers can keep their workers safe

Sanitation employers and employees in Pennsylvania may not be aware that the industry they work in is one of the most dangerous in the nation. Among civilian occupations in 2016, refuse and recyclable material collectors had the fifth highest fatal injury rate. This is according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Deadly trucking crashes continue upward trend

For many Pennsylvania drivers, the fear of having a crash involving a large truck or bus can be very real. With the large size and mass of these vehicles, they have a significant potential to cause serious physical harm to other drivers, pedestrians and cyclists on the road in an accident. In addition, the number of fatal crashes involving large trucks is on the rise across the country, according to statistics released by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
