I’m glad I didn’t travel very far this past Labor Day. We travelled “up north” to Marinette County. A beautiful part of Wisconsin.
Anyway, I read this news brief from the AAJ’s website about various safety violations involving over the road truckers (semi trucks, tractor trailers etc.) .
It appears that Wisconsin has a rate of trucker safety violations that are in excess of the national average. The article states:
States that had a rate of companies in violation of safety requirements above the national average include West Virginia, North Dakota, Nebraska, Vermont, Iowa, Montana, Delaware, Idaho, Arkansas, Connecticut, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oregon, Indiana, Mississippi, Wisconsin, and South Dakota. A full listing of all companies in violation of federal safety requirements by state is available at www.justice.org/trucksafetyviolations.
I hope everyone had a safe Labor Day weekend. Keep driving safe!
