Gallery: Trucker safety guide and statistics for 2023

Jan. 24, 2023
The latest numbers in safety, including the most dangerous regions and roads of the country, and how drivers can prepare for trucking's many occupational hazards.

Safety should be at the top of everyone's minds in a trucking operation, but no matter how proactive management is or how well-trained drivers are, crashes will occur. It's important for safety personnel and truckers to know the riskiness of various situations.

For that reason, Hale Trailer Brake & Wheel has created a series of infographics that lay out the most recent data in road safety: what situations are the most dangerous, what types of crashes are most common, and what factors are most important to look at when assessing risk.
