IIHS: newer pickups may be neglecting front passenger safety

It appears that newer pickup trucks pose a greater danger to passengers than to drivers. After a round of crash tests, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that passengers of modern two-row pickups are more liable to suffer injuries or death than drivers. The tests involved 11 pickup models, some of which Pennsylvania residents may be familiar with.

As truck crash deaths rise, NHTSA criticized for failure to act

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.

Safety groups push for speed limiters in large trucks

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.
