Trucking is a dangerous profession. Driving certain types of rigs, like tankers and flatbeds, is probably among the most dangerous occupations in the country. One of the biggest hazards for drivers is rollover. About 55 percent of all semi-driver fatalities occurs as a result of a rollover accident. As many as 600 drivers per year are killed in highway accidents. A new device now in use in commercial trucks in Europe could help keep American drivers safe. Hopefully, new technology and an emphasis on safety will help professional drivers “keep on trucking.”
