SAFE Trucking Act Seeks to Raise Truck Size, Weight Limits

Progressive Farmer reports that Rep. Reid Ribble (R-WI) introduced the Safe, Flexible, and Efficient (SAFE) Trucking Act, which would raise the maximum allowable weight for freight-shipping trucks from the current 80,000 pounds to 91,000 pound. The article notes that National Grain and Feed Association supports the bill because it would mean more efficient grain transportation by allowing trucks to carry an additional 11,000 pounds of weight on federal highways while adhering to DOT safety guidelines.

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
