Are YRC Worldwide Trucks Safe?

Trucking company owners and operators are responsible for ensuring that their trucks are safe and properly maintained, and that drivers follow hours-of-service rules and operate their vehicles safely. Fatal tractor-trailer crashes are all too common because transportation companies and their drivers often violate safety regulations in order to make more money. Collisions between cars and tractor-trailers are usually catastrophic for people in passenger vehicles.
