Types of Distractions Truck Drivers Face
Commercial drivers are held to higher standards than regular drivers. For example, the legal alcohol limit for truck drivers is half as big as for those without commercial driver’s licenses. This is because when a commercial truck is involved in an accident, the consequences are far more serious, including catastrophic injury and even death. It is crucial that professional drivers give their utmost attention to operating their vehicle.
A truck driver may cause an accident due to distractions such as:
- Cell phone use
- Adjusting the radio
- Using their short-wave transmission radio
- Checking their surroundings instead of watching the road
- Reading or writing
While these may seem like obvious activities to avoid, they happen often. If you were injured because a commercial driver was distracted, let our team help you fight for the compensation you need.
