Description

The News-Journal investigates increasing truck fatalities in Florida. The investigation found that average truck weights are increasing, Florida's weight limits are some of the most lenient in the country and the Florida Trucking Association gave $163,200 to legislative candidates between 1996 and 2000, lobbying vigorously against strengthening weight and safety laws.
