Examples of Improper Truck Driving That Cause Accidents

Semi tractor-trailers offer exceptional challenges to safe operation. Operating an 18-wheeler or other large commercial vehicle requires a vast amount of training as well as concentration and skill. The sheer size of such large vehicles puts them at risk of causing accidents such as jackknifing and rollover.

When a truck driver fails to maintain the proper level of vigilance, he or she puts every other driver on the road at risk. Numerous actions that truck drivers may take are especially prone to creating risks. These actions include:

  • Speeding
  • Improper lane changes
  • Hard braking
  • Wide turns
