Keeping Our Roads Safer - Holding Dump Truck Operators Accountable

Dump trucks are notorious for rushing to construction sites, often spilling debris such as gravel and other construction materials on the way. In many cases, construction companies put pressure on drivers to deliver loads faster, so that drivers feel they have to break traffic laws just to keep their jobs.

Here are examples of negligence by dump truck drivers and their employers:

  • Driver fatigue caused by long working hours
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Defective brakes or other maintenance problems
  • Unbalanced loads, which can cause trucks to tip when making sudden maneuvers
  • Load shifting, which can cause a driver to lose control
  • Spilled loads or construction debris
  • Failing to yield at intersections
  • Running stop signs or stoplights
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Hiring unqualified drivers
