Michigan can’t seem to get its semi-truck problem under control. In the past week or so, there has been a string of new accidents involving semi-trucks in the Great Lake State, and some of these incidents have proven fatal. In an ideal world, the state would get these accidents under control, and families would not need to bury their loved ones because of unaddressed safety issues on our roads. But this is not an ideal world, and semi-trucks continue to wreak havoc on our roads.
