Feds eliminate unnecessary inspection reports for truckers

In a move that could mean safer roads for Louisiana drivers, the Department of Transportation has announced the end of an onerous paperwork requirement for the U.S. trucking industry. Effective Dec. 18, professional truck drivers will no longer have to file pre- and post-trip vehicular inspection reports when no violations are noted during inspection. According to the DOT, approximately 95 percent of all commercial truck inspections result in no safety or maintenance concerns.

Louisiana drivers at risk in big truck crashes

According to data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 10.7 percent of accidents in Louisiana involved a semi-truck in 2012. Nationally, approximately 333,000 semi-trucks weighing more than 10,000 pounds were involved in wrecks that same year.
