Dangers of Overloaded Trucks
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) federal regulations, semi-trucks and tractor-trailers have an acceptable weight of 20,000 pounds per axle, with a total of 80,000 pounds for a four-axle truck. Commercial trucking companies and truck drivers are directly responsible for maintaining proper weight limits and that the cargo is loaded in a satisfactory and evenly distributed manner. Unfortunately, they often neglect to follow regulations in order to make a profit and meet deadlines at a quicker rate.
An overloaded truck may be responsible for the following dangers:
- Strain on brakes, tires and overall mechanics
- Stopping difficulties
- Increased momentum, resulting in more severe injuries in the event of a collision
- More damage on the roads and highways due to weight
- Debris being scattered across the highway, creating unsafe driving conditions for other motorists
