Southern California’s San Gabriel Valley, in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, is home to the City of Monrovia, one of the oldest communities in Los Angeles County.
Monrovia is situated in a region known as the Inland Empire, which lies to the east of the Los Angeles city sprawl. Once a sparse community known for its orange ranches, Monrovia has today grown into a thriving community, measuring nearly 14 miles in size, with a population of roughly 36,600 people.
Because the San Gabriel Valley and Inland Empire corridor include many communities with rich agricultural, manufacturing or industrial sectors, it is not uncommon for the region to see an elevated number of large trucks or tractor-trailers, which are used to transport large quantities of goods. This means that residents must demonstrate increased awareness when sharing Los Angeles’ busy roadway system, or run the risk of accident or personal injury.
Truck Accidents in Monrovia, California
When it comes to evaluating the severity of motor vehicle accidents, truck accidents, or those involving large big rigs, semi-trucks or tractor-trailers, tend to be particularly severe. One clear-cut reason is the sheer size and force of the vehicles involved – these types of trucks can easily dwarf any other vehicle on the roadway.
That, paired with the dangers that others face while sharing the roads, has led to heavily regulation of the commercial trucking industry, which has seen a number of measures put in place to help ensure safety. Such regulations don’t just cover the type of vehicles that we see on the roads today – they also clearly outline requirements related to drive time, work hours and training programs.
Although there are special regulations for truck drivers and their companies, it’s important to note that drivers of these vehicles are expected to obey the same rules of the road as non-commercial drivers. From maintaining the proper speed to properly signaling during turning or lane changing, the rules of the road apply to all drivers, regardless of the type of vehicle they are driving
Failure to adhere to these regulations, or general traffic guidelines, can yield dire consequences, including accidents, personal injury or even wrongful death.
