Why must truck cargo be properly secured?

It is not a common sight, but it is possible that some readers of this Texas legal blog have seen the following event occur. While driving down the freeway, they spot a big rig ahead of them. But instead of traveling straight down its lane, the big rig is swerving from side to side, threatening to cross the lane markers and to crash into other vehicles. It may look like the truck's driver is drunk or asleep at the wheel, but in fact the rig may be suffering from a serious safety issue: improperly secured cargo.

Any cargo a truck carries can be dangerous

Truck accidents are fairly common, given the large number of big trucks on the road today and how many miles they have to travel to get to their destinations. Because there are so many trucks, and because things can go wrong, trucks sometimes tip and spill the load they are carrying.

Some recent statistics suggest that drivers should be increasingly aware of the potential for an accident.
