Unsecured materials on roadways are responsible for approximately 25,000 motor vehicle accidents and approximately 80-90 deaths each year, according to a 2004 study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Accordingly, it is important for motorists, including truck drivers, to take appropriate precautions to ensure that their vehicle loads are adequately secured.
