I have managed a trucking company in the san antonio and austin area for 10 years now, and can assure you one of the major factors here is enforcement and equipment neglect. We are required to do dot biannual inspections on each tractor and trailer that touches they road. Along with having dot scales down ih35 that stop and inpect trucks randomally daily. There are no scales stopping and inspecting these trucks, there are very few dot officers pulling them over doing road side inspections, thus these owners are nickel and diming their maintance and it is resulting in deaths. Just count how many semis you see around stockdale in the morning with non working headlights, here in austin that same truck would not make it 10 miles with out an out of service order and a ticket...enforcement is the problem out here, not traffic...a well maintained truck and an experienced driver are just as safe on the road as you and me. DOT needs to drastically step up their enforcement aroudn the eagle ford work zone, all complaints and protests should be directed straight to their desk demanding stricter enforcement.
