CVSA plans two brake inspection campaigns

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has two brake inspection campaigns planned for this year, and they are aimed exclusively at the drivers of commercial motor vehicles. CMV drivers across California and the rest of the U.S. could benefit from knowing the details, and they will want to make sure their brakes are properly installed and maintained. Functioning brakes will help trucks and buses maintain a reasonable stopping distance and keep other drivers safe.

Combining stricter laws and education for traffic safety

People in California who are texting and driving may be endangering themselves and others on the road. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 9 people die daily and around 1,000 are injured in accidents that involve distracted drivers. The five seconds it may take to receive or send a text means looking away from the road for the distance of a football field when a car is traveling at 55 mph. Around one-third of drivers have said they text while driving.

Truck crashes in California and their most common injuries

Should they survive, they can be left with serious physical and mental conditions. Below are just a few of the most common.
