LEHIGH VALLEY: Driverless Tractor-Trailer Trucks Headed to Pennsylvania

Our highways in Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton could soon see driverless tractor-trailer trucks on Interstate 78 and Route 22. Companies such as Uber have invested in self-driving technology that recently allowed a tractor-trailer to haul a load of beer cases in Colorado without a human driver, according to the transportation director at the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission (LVPC).

Here at the Trapani Law Firm, our Lehigh Valley personal injury lawyers are worried that the state and federal trucking and vehicle safety regulations will not be strict enough. The initial implementation of this technology could lead to many wrongful death accidents on Interstate 78 or Route 22, in Allentown or Bethlehem. Our attorneys will continue to fight for highway safety here in the Lehigh Valley. If you have any questions regarding a tractor-trailer accident please call our injury law firm anytime.
