Most of us don’t realize how important tractor-trailer highway safety is until it affects someone we know and love. The current laws in place restricting tractor-trailer truck length; weight and driver’s hours are slowly being eroded so that big business can increase their bottom line. This will ultimately lead to more car accidents caused by tractor-trailers and my fear at the Trapani Law Firm is that most if us will never realize what is taking place until a loved one is involved in a personal injury or wrongful death car accident here in the Lehigh Valley.

The trucking industry is currently objecting to requirements that truck drivers take a 34-hour break before starting a “a new work week,” with two periods of sleep from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. Sleep scientists insist that rest during these early morning periods is critical for drivers to recharge before they get back on the road. The personal injury attorneys at the Trapani Law Firm ask all our friends to remind their local politicians that strict highway safety laws are imperative in order to avoid tragic auto accidents in the Lehigh Valley. We hope that this message finds you well and that you will consider the safety of our roads in the future.
