Hazards of Larger Trucks
There are several
common causes for truck accidents, and The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has numerous regulations
designed to mitigate the dangers associated with the operation of large
trucks. These regulations must be observed by truck drivers and trucking
companies. Sometimes, violations of these rules play a role in truck accidents
and the related personal injury claims.
Some of these regulations include:
- Required rest stops for drivers
- Proper loading
- Regular maintenance of vehicles
- Training for drivers
Big commercial trucks can weigh 40 tons. They are often awkward and require
larger spaces in order to turn and maneuver as well as longer distances
in order to stop, while possessing larger blind spots. For all of these
reasons, semis, big rigs, tractor trailers, and other large transport
vehicles do pose an additional hazard to drivers of conventional vehicles.
