Truck drivers in Pennsylvania should know that large truck crashes are on the rise. In 2017, a total of 4,102 people died in such accidents; 68 percent of those were occupants of cars, and 14 percent were pedestrians, motorcyclists or bicyclists. In all, the number of fatalities has risen 28 percent since 2009. Now, many truck safety advocacy groups are criticizing the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for failure to do anything about this trend.
Dogs are a popular pet in Pennsylvania, and you find it difficult to find someone who does not adore these cute animals. However, as you already know, pets are still animals who can act in very animalistic ways. You also know that dog bite injuries can be extremely traumatic in more than one way.
Over the last few years, fatal truck accidents have been on an uptick in Pennsylvania and around the country. However, a coalition of truck safety advocates believes that passing regulations mandating the use of speed limiters and automatic emergency braking, or AEB, systems could help reverse the troubling trend.
