Speeding Or Reckless Driving
No Fee Unless You Win.
Were You Injured By A Truck Driver Who Was Speeding?
Trucking companies have a duty to check driver backgrounds and hire qualified drivers who do not put other motorists at risk.
Pre-Employment Screening Of Tractor-Trailer Drivers
The Department of Transportation Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) helps trucking companies make informed hiring decisions by providing access to a driver’s crash and inspection records.
The state’s motor vehicle records (MVR) contain information about each driver’s past convictions for speeding, reckless driving and other offenses. By accessing both the PSP and MVR, trucking companies can identify unsafe drivers and avoid bad hires.
Unfortunately, some trucking companies save money by hiring drivers that a more responsible employer would not put on the road.
