In 2007, more than 5,100 people were killed in crashes involving large trucks and buses, according to the Department of Transportation.  There were also approximately 100,000 Americans injured in collisions involving both large trucks and buses. The American Association for Justice (AAJ) has urged Congress to take needed steps to reduce highway fatalities and injuries by enhancing safety measures and rules for the commercial vehicle industry.

“Stricter safety standards, including roof crush resistance, added seatbelt standards and enhanced driver fatigue monitoring, could protect consumers by reducing the severity of motor carrier accidents,” said AAJ Director of Regulatory Affairs Gerie Voss.  “The brakes have been on vehicle safety standards for too long. Safety features are not a luxury, we hope this administration will accelerate consumer safety to reduce fatalities and injuries.”
