Year after year, Texas has the highest number of large truck wrecks in the nation. From 2016 to 2019, the number of truck crashes in our state increased by almost 30%. To protect the lives of Texas families, we need more safety measures, not less. Legislation pushed by trucking lobbyists will endanger all of us on the roads.
HB 19 will harm families devastated by 18-wheeler wrecks. This bill gives trucking corporations less incentive to follow safety measures, which means you and your family will be at greater risk on the roads. It will make it harder to punish trucking companies through our courts when they violate safety standards. When bad actors do not follow the rules, they need to be held fully accountable by a jury of our peers in order to help protect us all. And when recklessness causes death, serious injuries, or the inability to work, corporations must face the consequences.
Take one minute to write to your local paper to OPPOSE HB 19!
