Tanker rollovers are incredibly dangerous as we have blogged about repeatedly in the past. Currently there are no government mandates requiring anti-rollover technology despite it being readily available and over 725 tanker rollovers a year. A recent amendment to a bill would require the government to report on tanker rollovers and methods and recommendation to reduce them, such as anti-rollover technology.
Past studies have concluded that 75% of tanker rollover’s are due to the tanker driver’s error. I conclude from that that well over 50% of tanker drivers are inadequately trained.
