18 Tractor Trailers were involved in a 100 car pileup in a California fog on November 4, 2007, and the tragedy is the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations require drivers to use "extreme caution" if they have poor visibility. This was an avoidable collision for the truck driver’s, and the Innocent’s hurt by their recklessness, if the tractor trailer drivers had only followed the law.
Specifically 49 C.F.R. § 392.14 states a driver must exercise "extreme caution" when hazardous conditions, such as those caused by snow, ice, sleet, fog, mist, rain, dust or smoke, adversely affect visibility or traction. Had the driver’s exercised "extreme caution" there is no doubt in my mind that there would have not been 18 tractor trailers involved in this collision and the photographs I am pasting below would not have included a tractor trailer.
