Truckers Pollution Coverage Overview
The standard Auto and General Liability policy specifically excludes pollution coverage. Pollution is generally defined as the discharge, release or escape of pollutants. If your operations have you transporting hazardous materials you need to work with your insurance agent to make sure your policy includes the Truckers Broadened Pollution endorsement, and, in some cases, a full pollution insurance policy. Some of the better trucking insurance policies automatically include this endorsement. The sudden and accidental pollution, when a tank of diesel fuel gets spilled in an accident, is addressed in the MCS90 endorsement which should be included in all interstate trucking for hire policies.
