Driving safty issue

Today the Calgary Police Service released results of a recent
Check Stop. The result is scary.

A total of 554 vehicles (including all types and sizes of commercial vehicles, as reported in earlier statement) were selected to be checked for
mechanical condition, load securement and operator
qualification, to enhance commercial vehicle safety
throughout the province. Of these, 230 vehicles (42 per cent)
passed in all areas, 140 vehicles (25 per cent) required
minor repair, and 184 vehicles (33 per cent) required major
repair before they could continue.

The result tells us: When you are passing (or passed by) 3 commercial vehicles, it is very likely that one of them loses control and strikes on you without any warning.
