According to Adage.com, as a result of this high-profile crash, Walmart is facing scrutiny into how it operates its driving fleets reports. Walmart currently provides several safety features for its tractor trailers, including a proximity warning for slow-moving trucks, lighter truck bodies, advanced camera and video displays, and automatic slowing brakes for high-traffic areas. Roper’s truck was equipped with automatic slowing brakes and a proximity warning device. According to Walmart CEO Bill Simon, Walmart will take "full responsibility" if found guilty of negligence.

Walmart has over 6,200 tractor trailers on the road and drives around 700 million miles per year. Walmart has an average of 1.6 million miles driven per preventable accident, indicating that the retailer is involved in around 400 accidents each year. Data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration found that Walmart trucks were involved with just 390 accidents from 2011-2012, with 129 involving injuries and 9 involving fatalities. According to the report, Walmart ranks in the top 0.5 percent for compliance with driver safety regulations.
