Every day, large cargo-laden trucks and other commercial vehicles crisscross the streets and highways of Austin, and throughout Texas. These large and heavy vehicles and their drivers share the roads with much smaller passenger cars, pickups, minivans, and motorcycles whose drivers and passengers. Even in the hands of the most experienced drivers, the size and weight of the vehicles increase the danger and risk of injury to the motorists around them. This is, of course, part of the reason the drivers of these vehicles are held to higher standard and are required to hold a commercial driver’s license.
Too often, however, truck drivers and the companies they work for put their own interests ahead of the safety of others. This inevitably leads to accidents, with the 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles crashing into the other Austin motorists. Unfortunately for those involved and their families, catastrophic injuries and deaths often follow.
