Description

"A six-month Dateline investigation revealed an extraordinary number of eighteen wheelers driving the nation's highways with serious defects. We searched accident and inspection records of trucking companies throughout the country and spent several days at truck inspection stations and found forty percent of big rigs were so dangerous they were ordered off the road. Incredibly, the main defect we found was brake problems."
