Is drug use a leading cause of truck accidents?

The drivers of semitrailers and commercial vehicles are behind the wheels of vehicles that are larger and heavier than other types of vehicles on the road. In an accident, a truck can cause significant damage and injuries, and truckers have a specific responsibility to drive safely. While Texas truck accidents are often the result of careless driving, distraction and speeding, a safety group recently released findings that reveal drug use could be a significant problem in the trucking industry.

Avoiding truck accidents with safe driving

Large trucks and semitrailers play a crucial role in the economy in Texas. There are thousands of trucks on the roads at any given time, and every driver should learn how to safely share the road. Each person behind the wheel should be aware of how they can avoid truck accidents by practicing certain habits and committing to be as safe as possible.

Fatigued driving is a major hazard among truckers

Texas has more miles of road than any other state. Most people choose to drive as a way of travel, which means sharing the road with large tractor-trailers. These giant vehicles pose some dangers even under ideal circumstances. And unfortunately, circumstances are rarely ideal.
