Trucks are required to maintain specific equipment that may help protect drivers and surrounding vehicle occupants alike. The undercarriage on a big rig is one specific piece of equipment that can be very in preventing much smaller vehicles from sliding beneath a commercial truck, potentially slicing the top of crushing the roof of the vehicle and provoking serious and fatal injuries. Inadequate guards that do important not meet specific standards can be deadly.
