Description

This computer-assisted investigation examines car accidents involving commercial trucks after a series of Maine accidents in 1993 and 1994 killed five people and injured 13 others. Findings showed that 60% of fatal collisions on the interstate highway system in Maine involved trucks. Also, Maine's truck safety laws were found to be weak and federal enforcement efforts have been cut.
