Common Causes of Pompano Beach Truck Accidents
Truck drivers have many regulations imposed on them to keep themselves and other drivers safe and to protect their companies from liability. They are required to follow all state and federal laws while operating their vehicles, as well as those from the trucking industry. Despite all of these safeguards, over 30,000 devastating truck accidents occur every year in Florida. In 2018 alone, 325 large trucks were involved in fatal accidents in Florida. Here is why:
- Speeding. It is safe to assume that at one time or another, all truck drivers have gone faster than they should have in order to meet a delivery or pickup deadline. No matter what the reasoning is, speeding while operating such a massive vehicle can cause serious accidents.
- Lack of sleep. Many truck drivers can identify when they need to rest, and allow time for naps at rest stops, hotels, etc. Occasionally, fatigue comes on suddenly, or drivers try to press on for time reasons. Falling asleep or being so tired that your reflexes are impacted is extremely risky while driving a truck.
- Maintenance issues: Truck drivers are required to inspect their vehicles regularly and keep up with regular maintenance. They must also comply with commercial vehicle inspections when required by the Florida Highway Department of Safety and Motor Vehicles. Despite these preventative measures, unforeseen mechanical failures can still occur and can lead to catastrophe.
