Yes. Companies have an obligation to ensure their drivers are safe to drive and must perform regular tests to confirm the safety of their drivers. Additionally, trucking companies are obligated to perform proper maintenance on the trucks their drivers operate. Although drivers of large vehicles must possess a commercial driver’s license (CDL), having a CDL alone does not necessarily mean the driver has been properly trained or has the experience to operate such a vehicle. Employers should examine the driver’s history to confirm the driver should be operating the vehicle. Finally, unrealistic, or unsafe delivery deadlines can lead to driver fatigue which can be very dangerous to other motorists.
