Truck drivers are held to a higher standard than drivers of passenger automobiles. Truck drivers need to be especially alert and cognizant of their surroundings because Trucks require far more distance to stop or slow down than do passenger cars. Also, to ensure they have adequate rest and to help avoid truck accidents, truck drivers are required to comply with laws restricting the number of continuous hours they can be on the road driving.
It is also extremely important that the Truck itself is safe. A truck or semi should be regularly serviced. Its brakes and tires should be regularly checked and maintained. Proper maintenance of a truck is expensive but it ensures safety.
Unfortunately, the regulations are not always followed by truck drivers or their employers and accidents happen. As you can imagine, an accident involving a truck typically results in far greater damage and injury to those involved.
