Trucking companies, like any company, are in business to create a profit for themselves. While this is perfectly acceptable, it is not acceptable for any business to skirt safety regulations in order to increase their profits. While many trucking companies abide by the laws and regulations required of them to keep their drivers and the vehicles they encounter safe, some companies attempt to cut costs through negligent or purposefully irresponsible practices. When this happens and it causes an accident, trucking companies must be held accountable.
