Unsafe brakes on commercial vehicles compromises highway safety

While driver error is often thought to be the main cause of motor vehicle accidents, it is also true that unsafe vehicles can be a significant contributing factor. For that reason, states require regular vehicle inspections to ensure compliance with necessary safety standards. However, despite these precautions, there are still a significant number of vehicles that travel on Connecticut roadways that do not meet these safety standards.

Electronic devices required to log trucker hours on the road

Connecticut motorists have likely driven past the aftermath of a traffic accident involving a commercial truck. Many of these collisions are caused by truck drivers who are drowsy after spending too many hours behind the wheel. The federal government many years issued hours of service regulations, one of which required truckers to manually keep track of their hours on handwritten logs.

Aggressive driving can cause fatal accidents

Aggressive drivers are a persistent and dangerous problem for law enforcement agencies, and researchers with the American Automobile Association concluded in 2009 that this type of behavior was a factor in more than half of the fatal accidents that took place on American roads between 2003 and 2007. While Connecticut residents may associate aggressive driving with road rage incidents, the National Highway Traffic Administration defines aggressive driving as violations of motor vehicle laws that place other road users or their property in peril.
