Driver injured after truck strikes and knocks over traffic light

No matter the time of day or night it is, drivers in Montana are likely to share the road with large trucks. While these massive trucks have a continuous presence on major and minor roadways throughout the nation, semi-trucks and tractor-trailers do present some dangers on the roads. Due to their large size, if a truck driver is not properly maneuvering the truck or driving safely, he or she could initiate a hazardous situation, resulting in a serious or even fatal truck accident.

What are the proposed trucking regulations for new truck drivers?

Large trucks, such as semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks, maintain an important role in commerce and the transportation of goods, materials and animals. Because of that, residents in Montana and elsewhere will frequently share the roads with these large trucks. Since truck drivers require special licensure to drive these massive vehicles, it is presumed that truck drivers, new and seasoned, have the skills and ability to drive large trucks. Despite that, the Department of Transportation (DOT) has proposed a new minimum training standard for entry-level truck drivers.
