Commercial truck drivers have a responsibility to drive carefully for the protection of the public. Semis and other large commercial trucks have the capacity to cause serious or fatal injuries if they are not properly operated.
Unfortunately, traffic accidents involving a large truck are all too common. Many of these accidents are the result of truck driver errors including:
- Driver fatigue
- Improper loading
- Improper lane changes
- Driving too fast in adverse weather
- Failure to keep a safe distance from other vehicles
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Talking on a cell phone while driving
