The Dangers of Truck Traffic in Portales, NM and Around the Country

Heavy truck traffic is common in Portales, NM thanks to our manufacturing roots. While the transit generates income to the community, it also poses an inherent danger to our residents. The hazards of truck traffic are not germane to our roads, as the country’s economy is dependent on their travel too.

The Federal Highway Administration recorded last year:

  • Over 11 million semi-trucks were registered in the U.S. alone
  • 73% of all cargo transported in the U.S. was moved by semi-trucks

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration adds:

  • Semi-trucks account for over 42% of all miles covered by commercial trucks, but only comprise 15% those registered in the U.S.
  • Combined, semi-truck drivers in the U.S. travel approximately 140 billion miles per year
    • Single drivers average 45,000 miles each annually
    • Long-haul truckers average 100,000 miles each annually

The U.S. Department of Transportation maintains that:

  • Semi-trucks transport 68% of all goods in the United States
  • Agriculture is one of the two most commonly transported commodities; building materials is second

The danger of excessive truck traffic falls directly on passenger vehicle drivers who travel alongside these larger vehicles. When a car, SUV, or truck is involved in an accident with a semi-truck, the injuries can be life changing. At the Caruso Law Offices, PC our truck accident attorneys in Portales, NM can help you recover the financial settlement you will need to heal.
