Improper Reflection Results in Serious Truck Accidents
When a truck stalls on the side of the road, proper reflection will prevent a collision with a moving car. The federal requirements for reflectors involve a certain thickness of the tape and number of reflectors on the truck itself. Even if a truck abides by the law, reflectors and reflective tape can become dirty and impossible to see, resulting in a serious accident.
Many times truck accidents occur from disabled trucks not pulling off the roadway entirely. When a trucker is disabled, he is required to place out flares or reflective triangles certain distances and in a certain patterns behind his trailor. Believe it or not these collisions happen just as frequently in the daytime as in the nighttime. The carnage from an automobile careening into the back of a stalled tractor trailor is immense. That is why you need Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P.
