Every year, an overwhelming majority of fatal traffic accidents involve trucks and trailers. While there is a substantial amount of law in place to keep our roads safe, there are still so many factors that contribute to this unfortunate statistic:
- Overtired drivers
- Imbalanced or overweight payload
- Untrained drivers
- Slower brake times
