Large truck cargo safety

When you are responsible for driving large trucks on the roadways of California, there are several things you need to remember in order to keep yourself and other drivers around you safe. One of those is the necessity of carefully inspecting your cargo before getting behind the wheel. We at E and E Law Group are here to help in case of an accident, but can also provide the information you need to prevent crashes from ever occurring.


Properly inspecting your cargo is one of the most important safety steps you can take. The State of California Department of Motor Vehicles claims that drivers need to check and re-check their load to be sure everything is secured before hitting the road. Every time you take a break, you should take another look.


It is also a good idea to stop and examine your cargo after your first 50 miles. This can illuminate weak spots in your loading and alert you to trouble areas that may have shifted while you were driving. When you begin a long trip, you should stop every 150 miles or three hours to re-examine your load.


Failing to properly secure your cargo can be incredibly dangerous. Packages or pieces that fall off into traffic can cause accidents, resulting in injury or death. Your truck can also be damaged if cargo shifts and weight becomes unbalanced.
