Clopton Capital is announcing a simple strategy to make our nation's highways safer and to make being a truck driver relatively more comfortable. Currently, a significant number of semi truck accidents take place due to the trucks themselves being in poor condition and Clopton Capital believes the financial and social cost of accepting this danger is greater than simply purchasing certified refurbished or brand new commercial trucks. The firm believes that in the long term, once the liabilities and repairs are calculated into the cost of operating a semi truck, that it would be far less expensive to simply finance a newer 18 wheeler than to operate a substandard one. “The math of trying to drive a truck past 700,000 miles really doesn't work unless it's being utilized for short distance hauls at slow speeds. If someone owns a truck with this many miles on it they would be better off selling that truck to a farmer and moving on to a better vehicle”, said Jake Clopton, the founder of Clopton Capital.

Clopton Capital intends to launch a semi truck safety campaign at some point in 2012 as a way to raise awareness of both good trucking practices and of their commercial truck financing division. “If we can keep outselves in the spotlight for all the right reasons and make a few extra dollars in the process everyone wins”, said Matt Reed of Clopton Capital.
