K Le started this petition to U.S. Senate

Two small children were killed when a semi truck crashed into the back of their car.  The semi truck couldn't stop.   A couple to be married lost their lives when they were killed in an accident involving a semi truck.  We hear and read about these stories too frequently.  What can we do to help prevent these accidents?

Speed limits have increased on highways.  Semi trucks are often exceeding these speed limits (pushing 80+ mph) and passing vehicles and other semi trucks.  Truck drivers are often fatigued, distracted, and/or pressing to get to a destination ahead of schedule.  Simple physics supports that these semi trucks cannot stop when they are traveling at high speeds.  They should not be traveling at 80 + mph on a busy highway.  The speed limit for semi trucks should be 55 mph, and this should be strictly enforced.  They should not be able to utilize the left lane to weave in and out of traffic at high speeds.  Hold the driver and the company accountable for unsafe driving practices.   Fine them.  Take away their license.  Save lives and sign this petition.
