Preventable Deaths Involving Semi Trucks

In Detroit a driver was killed when he collided with the rear of a tractor trailer and his vehicle went under the trailer. In some experts’ opinion the death could have been avoided, if the tractor trailer had used under guardrails. Currently laws lack regulations that require these protective devices. Even though, in 2011, the last time a study was conducted, indicated that 260 deaths nationwide involving tractor trailers could have been avoided with the use of these protective devices.
