Road Hazards

The Dallas Morning News has conducted a year-long investigation into safety issues plaguing the trucking industry in Texas. The final installment of the series focuses on felons in the workforce, harsh working conditions that make trucking a dangerous job, and the industry's political influence in shaping safety laws and regulations.

The Department of Transportation's Truck Inspection data can be obtained from the IRE and NICAR Database Library.
