Drilling companies must ensure the drivers hired to transport oil and gas are certified demonstrate competency to operate large trucks transporting hazardous materials.
Because oil and gas tanker trucks are more difficult to control because they have a much higher center of gravity than other trucks on the road, especially when full, the risk of rollover accidents increases.
Drivers must also comply with the maximum number of consecutive hours a driver may operate a commercial oil or gas truck and the minimum hours of rest required before a driver may resume work set by federal regulations. Many times, there are distracted drivers, driver fatigue as well as increased risk to other drivers because these regulations are ignored.

Traffic accidents involving oil and gas trucks are more likely to result in serious injuries and death to occupants of passenger vehicles involved in the collision due to the massive weight of the truck and the type of cargo being hauled.
Massive fires can result of an oil and gas truck crash because, fully loaded, they are extremely heavy and carry extremely flammable cargo that can spill upon impact. An oil and gas truck accident can result in a range of injuries from minor bruises and scrapes to severe injuries, like brain or spinal cord damage.
