Trucking accidents account for more deaths than any transportation related accident. It makes sense doesn’t it? Despite log books and other regulations, truckers are pushed and pressured far past the point of exhaustion. Often it’s cheaper for major common carriers to push the envelope in order to make deadlines for their company, than it is to demand their driver’s get rest and delay. Even after a recent change in federal law requiring certain minimums for sleep, many trucking companies choose to ignore the importance of an alert driver. Couple that with trailer-long blind spots in truck mirrors and heavy handling, and you have the makings of a crash “in waiting.” Tractor-trailers are enormous, often unbalanced vehicles. Realistically, how often is there only minor damage when they wreck.
