Common causes of truck related incidents are: Driver fatigue, fuel oil fires, driver inattention, unfamiliarity with the road, and inadequate surveillance. 1 in 4 truck drivers say they have fallen asleep at the wheel before. 20 hours of staying awake can lead to an impairment in concentration equal to a blood alcohol content of 0.08%…. that’s the same as driving drunk! 68% of all goods in the United States are delivered by semi-truck, which is why wherever you are, there always seems to be a big rig nearby. The maximum weight for a U.S semi-truck is 40 tons! Being hit by a truck this big is devastating no matter what speed or conditions the accidents occurred under.
