Safety board recommends ban on truckers and cell phones

Should truckers and other commercial drivers be banned from speaking on cell phones or texting messages while they are driving? According to one federal safety agency, the answer is a resounding "yes."

Semi-trailer bumpers prone to failure

Whenever a car collides with a truck, the potential for serious bodily injury is great. Rear-end collisions involving a truck and a passenger vehicle pose the most significant risks of all. In this type of truck accident, the passenger vehicle's hood can slide under the trailer and the trailer can crush the passenger compartment of the car. Truck underride accidents in the United States result in the death of more than 350 people per year and there is valid cause for concern that not enough has been done to prevent these deaths.

Study casts aspersions on drivers in fatal Toyota accidents

A study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) claims that sticky gas pedals, obstructive floor mats and simple driver error are primarily to blame in dozens of car accidents caused by runaway Toyota vehicles over the past several years. Critics of the study, however, are very skeptical.

Government Introduces New Rollover Accident Rule

Rollover accidents are among the most dangerous types of automobile accidents. Although they are not the most common type of accident, they have been responsible for one-third of all automobile fatalities and 10,000 deaths each year over the past decade, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Tractor Trailer Accidents Spotlight Comparatively Heavy Dangers

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 549 traffic fatalities in Maryland in 2009, the last year for which statistics have been fully reported. Although there is no separate breakdown for fatalities in accidents involving tractor trailers, police, insurance investigators and other interested parties readily note that trucking accidents involving these large and heavy rigs result in deaths and serious injuries at a comparatively high rate.

Federal Study Highlights Drug Use in Vehicle Fatalities

A new study that was released by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) last week departs from the usual focus on alcohol use as a contributing factor in fatal car accidents and scrutinizes, for the first time, the role that drugs play in motor vehicle fatalities.

NHTSA Investigates Car Rental Companies on Recall Actions

America's dominant rental car companies are suddenly a bit under siege, with the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) stating that "incidents involving allegations of personal injury and death" from car accidents have led it to investigate industry practices concerning recalled fleet vehicles.

Govt: Consumers to Benefit from New Car Crash Safety Standards

Auto makers used to revel in, and prominently advertise, the 5-star crash test safety ratings they routinely received from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ("NHTSA"). Those ratings encompassed performance standards achieved in gauging safety in front and side impact tests, as well as resistance to and stability in a vehicle rollover.

NHTSA Poll Highlights Attitudes Toward Drunk Driving

After having a few drinks, most Americans thankfully choose not to drive. Over 17 million of them do, however, even when they have a blood-alcohol content of .08 percent, which renders them legally drunk.

NHTSA Study has Positive Findings for Truck Rollovers


Commercial truckers ply Maryland highways non-stop and with loads ranging from produce and retail goods to animals and hazardous materials. The sheer volume of commercial trucks on state roads results, predictably, in a large number of truck accidents, many of them rollovers with fatal consequences.
