While a majority of tanker truck rollovers are caused by driver error, if trucking companies increased training and used current safety technology the number would be reduced according to a recent report by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The trucking companies appear to be withholding the very tools necessary to protect drivers and the public from these types of wrecks.

The report also noted "drowsiness and inattention together contribute to one in five cargo tank rollovers." Fatigue is a topic covered in my earlier posts at length and continues to be an issue of public safety.
