Concern Over Safety Abound
Many safety advocates are concerned that allowing trucks and truckers from Mexico to travel freely in the U.S. could cause serious safety issues. Already, large semi-trucks accidents in Denton and across Texas result in injuries and deaths. We have to wonder, if American trucks are already too often unsafe, what will adding a new set of trucks and truckers to our highways do to crash rates?
The new program, part of the North American Free Trade Agreement, is operating under a trial period. Hopefully, the trial will not come at the cost of lives lost to serious trucking crashes.
While our Denton large truck accident attorneys are hopeful that the new program will not cause more crashes, we will be watching this story very carefully.
What do you think? Should the trucks be allowed into the U.S. or should the old restrictions stay in place?
