More trucks in the U.S. are becoming ‘cleaner,’ as opposed to the ones that roamed America’s major roads and highways decades ago, mainly due to the continued advancement of semi-truck parts design. As AutoBlog Green’s Danny King notes in his article: “When it comes to diesel trucks, the good old days weren’t so good. Go back a quarter century, for instance. Back then, a singe diesel-powered truck was throwing off about 60 times the emissions a typical ‘clean diesel’ truck goes today.”

According to information from the Diesel Technology Forum, up to 33 percent of all trucks currently traversing U.S. highways are ‘cleaner’ versions of their smoky, older counterparts. About 2.9 million of 8.8 million trucks in all of America are now sporting newer, cleaner diesel engines. This data includes information on mostly class 3-8 trucks between 2007 and 2013, which were registered in the District of Columbia and all 50 states.

Semi-trucks are large vehicles that can be dangerous on the road if they happen to malfunction. This is why it’s important that regular maintenance checks are performed to ensure that parts are in place and are in good working order. Here are some of the parts you need to check now for their stability and use before hitting the road. (more…)

The lesson to learn from vehicle recalls is too important to ignore: the value and benefit of quality control in parts and services for driver and passenger safety. In this case, buying truck parts, including efficient LED trailer lights or hazard lights from reputable brands that offer high-quality products, cannot be stressed enough. Replacing faulty parts or equipment is one side of the coin, but using (and maintaining) these parts properly is another.
