TruckRight Insight

Thank you truckers!

The beginning of September is a time to celebrate all that the trucking industry means to us.

From groceries to gas to clothes and everything in between, if we’re using it, we owe a trucker a thank you.

So thank you to all the truckers who work late nights, early mornings, long days and go long stretches without seeing their families.

In Canada, National Trucking Week runs September 3-9.

In the United States, National Truck Driver Appreciation Week runs September 10-16.

No matter where you live, thank you for all that you do!

HOW MUCH ARE YOU WILLING TO RISK?

The true cost of an accident can be staggering. Besides direct costs, indirect costs like poor publicity, lost clients and lost productivity can take a toll. The average cost for a truck accident is $148,279, not including litigation. It would take an additional revenue of $7,413,950 to pay the accident costs, assuming an average profit margin of 2%. A study of over one million lines of data on truck violations discovered that over 28,000 trucking companies, representing over 200,000 trucks, operated with safety violations. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association’s (FMSCA) settlement for non-compliance was $36,262,097 in 2014 with an average fine of over $7,000 per case.
