They may also think of children's toys that could pose a choking hazard, medical devices, prescription drugs with dangerous side effects or household appliances that could start fires. Moreover, people in certain workplaces could be exposed to harmful substances, such as benzene and asbestos that could cause people to suffer from cancer or other fatal conditions.

The purpose of such a rule boils down to basic physics -- collisions involving slower moving vehicles will not be as severe as those involving faster moving vehicles. And, the American Trucking Association supports the proposed federal rule.
