Drowsy driving puts everyone at risk of injury

At all times, it's necessary for truck drivers to be awake, aware and focused. They need to be certain they're staying in their lanes, prepared to slow or stop for slowing traffic and in control of their vehicles. Drivers who are drowsy can't make the same quick decisions as those who get enough sleep.

What should you do if you're in a crash with a truck?

Trucks are incredibly large, heavy vehicles, and if they're involved in crashes, they can cause serious injuries and deaths. The destruction that can be caused by vehicles this size is scary, which is why drivers have to be properly trained to be behind the wheel.

How can truck drivers be safer on the roads?

When a truck driver is safe, he or she protects many people on the roads from danger. When he or she isn't, the negligent acts performed during driving can result in crashes. What should drivers be doing to keep people safe? There are actually a number of suggestions drivers can follow.

A settlement offer: You should consider your options closely

There's nothing quite as terrifying as realizing you're going to be hit by a tractor-trailer. These vehicles weigh thousands of pounds, and they have the ability to crush your vehicle on impact. If the truck rolls, it can completely collapse your vehicle's frame, trapping or pinning you inside.

Driving too quickly is illegal because of the dangers is poses to you and others on the road. Speeding can quickly result in a driver losing control of a vehicle and ending up with serious injuries. In some cases, drivers, passengers and others may be impacted, suffering injuries or being killed in the accident.

Minor injuries suffered as a result of wrong-way crash

When a driver is on the wrong side of a highway, he or she puts everyone's lives at risk. A driver headed south in northbound lanes or vice versa could collide with someone head-on, which can result in serious injuries. Even if a crash doesn't take place directly, other drivers may have a veer out of the way to avoid a collision, causing them to crash their vehicles without impacting the oncoming vehicle.
