In a recent study, common causes of large truck accidents were investigated.
Drug use was the most common accident cause. Whether it be illegal drugs or prescription medication, the drugs affected the driver’s reaction time.
Speeding was also a common cause of accidents. Due to the additional weight of these large trucks, these crashes experienced more fatalities.
Drivers are often unfamiliar with the area they are driving in. This unfamiliarity leads to numerous accidents every year.
Driver fatigue leads to many accidents. While maybe not as common as originally thought, it is a contributing factor in may accidents.
