In 2018 alone, over 4,100 people died in wreck with large trucks. Only 16% of those people were in the trucks. The other EIGHTY-FOUR PERCENT OF DEATHS were in passenger vehicles like cars and SUVs, as well as pedestrians and people on bicycles and motorcycles.
These deaths are on the rise (that was the most since 2009). Even the trucking industry’s allies, the insurance companies, can’t suppress all the data.
With so many fatalities (over 11 EACH DAY) the truck drivers, their companies, and their insurance are all working to put the blame on the injured and the dead, rather than take responsibility.
Why would trucking and insurance companies try to evade responsibility for death and terrible injury? One simple word: PROFIT. They are prepared to sacrifice innocent drivers and passengers to protect the companies’ own bottom lines.
