Commercial vehicles can be seen anywhere -- from taxis and delivery vans on busy streets to large trucks on Oklahoma's highways and interstates. Whether ferrying passengers across town or delivering finished goods to stores in faraway cities, these vehicles have the potential to wreak considerable property damage and injure or kill motorists. When a delivery truck, for example, collides with passenger vehicles, the occupants in the smaller vehicles are at increased risk of serious and sometimes fatal injuries.
So how can commercial vehicle accidents be prevented? Any owner of a commercial vehicle, such as a delivery truck, should understand that simply employing a competent driver is not enough to prevent an accident. The vehicle itself should be in good condition before it hits the road.
