Truck Accidents | Blogs by Steven Titus & Associates, P.C.
Large trucks play a crucial role in transporting goods across the country. However, their sheer size and design create significant challenges, particularly when it comes to visibility. Understanding the concept of blind spots and the potential dangers they pose is essential for both truck drivers and other motorists sharing the road.
Downhill braking presents a challenge for truckers. A tractor trailer driver who overuses the brakes on a long downhill slope can end up with no brakes and a runaway truck. This creates the risk of a deadly truck collision for other motorists.
Wyoming has one of the highest rates per capita of fatalities due to truck driving accidents. Large trucks are inherently more dangerous than everyday cars because of their immense size and the high speeds at which they tend to travel. Trucking companies encourage unrealistic schedules and create incentives for faster deliveries. This means that the shifts are longer so the drivers are more fatigued, putting them at risk of causing an accident.
