Overloaded Truck Accidents in South Bend
Injured? Call a South Bend Personal Injury Lawyer
Commercial trucks all have weight limits which are intended to help prevent trucks from
inhibiting their ability to operate safely due to having too much cargo
to manage. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has
enacted a federal safety limit of 20,000 pounds per axle. However, many
trucks have the power to haul more than this so companies may choose to
push the limits in order to maximize their profit per delivery.
A truck that is overloaded can present the following hazards:
- Difficulty stopping
- Higher-energy collisions due to more momentum
- Extra strain on brakes, increasing risk of failure
- Extra wear and tear on highways due to weight
- Increased odds of tire blowout
