With many state and interstate highways crossing through it, Little Rock, Arkansas has been identified as one of the top five cities for fatality accidents in the country. The reported total fatality rate per 100,000 population is nearly 18. Among these are a high number of pedestrian fatalities. Major causes of truck and semi-truck accidents often include Violation of the Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (“DOT Regs”) and: Driver tiredness and fatigue, Poor or faulty maintenance practices, Distracted driving
Brake failure or out of service brakes, Tire blowouts, Override accidents, Runaway trailers, Overloaded trailers/ semi-trucks, Jack-knifing, Driver error, Highway conditions/weather, on-time deadlines
A survey of Arkansas accident cases reveal dangerously overloaded trucks being driven with poor braking systems that were not maintained, or that were altered, along with questionable tires, and other unsafe maintenance practices. By choosing to ignore or put off necessary maintenance, unscrupulous operators shift their safety risk to the unsuspecting public. The law provides the tools necessary to hold such operators and their insurance companies accountable.
