On February 23, 2017, a tractor-trailer truck crashed on Route 22 in the Lehigh Valley. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation there were no personal injuries reported. Local Route 22 traffic was limited to the left lane near Allentown. Lehigh Valley highway traffic was slowed at the 15th Street interchange. The blue tractor-trailer truck landed on its side after the accident. The truck was removed at 10:23 a.m. and Route 22 highway traffic was restored to normal by 10:30 a.m.
A 2012 federally-funded tractor-trailer trucking study by the American Transportation Research institute showed that lowering the speed dramatically decreases the number of tractor-trailer truck accidents on U.S. highways. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has used this study to support its proposed law that every tractor-trailer must implement Speed Limiters on all commercial trucking vehicles. These speed limiters will prevent tractor-trailers from exceeding the maximum speed of 68 miles per hour. Our Allentown tractor-trailer lawyers at the Trapani Law Firm will continue to support highway safety legislation in order to prevent commercial truck accidents here in the Lehigh Valley.
