The development of shale gas in Ohio is already leading to increased truck traffic throughout the state. The regulations that trucking companies describe as "burdensome" are the same regulations that are designed to protect motoring Ohioans from their negligent conduct.
As the story notes, trucking companies are also having trouble locating qualified drivers to meet their needs. As truck traffic increases, so too will trucking accidents, many of which will be the result of trucking companies skirting safety regulations or hiring unqualified truck drivers to fill their demands.
