Causes of truck accidents

These accidents could be avoided if truck drivers or companies carried out periodic inspections of the vehicles to ensure their proper functioning. On the other hand, companies are obliged to adequately train truck drivers, because they are vehicles with a capacity to cause damage greater than any other automotive, if they are not driven correctly and respecting the traffic laws.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents are:

– Mechanical problems of the vehicle (defective wheels or brakes).

– Negligence and recklessness of drivers (distraction, speeding, alcohol or drug use).

– Bad conditions of the road (holes, damages).

– Bad road design (bad signaling, narrow road).

– Bad weather conditions (rain, snow, thick fog)

– Driving behind or beside a truck in areas of blind spots where the visibility of the driver of the truck is zero.

– Driving a vehicle in the opposite direction to the truck and changing lanes facing the truck; take an unexpected turn to the right in the same direction that the truck turns as well or take a left turn of the truck at an intersection.
