California Disposal Truck Accidents
During a recent study it was showed that on average, garbage trucks kill more pedestrians and cyclist per 100 million miles driven than any other vehicle on the road. Garbage trucks do not travel too many miles, spending the majority of time in neighborhoods — so the risk ratio is increased.
Although certain provisions of the vehicle code do not apply to rubbish and garbage vehicles, they are not relieved of the duty to drive with care. For example, garbage trucks are allow to drive on the opposite side of the road, but only if the front and rear turn signal lamps at each side are being flashed simultaneously.
Also, provisions to garbage trucks do not apply when they are driving to and from work. If you or someone you love has been injured in a garbage truck accident in California, contact The Dolan Law Firm today for a free consultation.
