Serious Semi Truck Injuries - Jacknife Crashes - Rollovers
Imagine a 30-ton vehicle driving 70 miles an hour down Interstate 80. If you get hit by that you'll be lucky to limp away.
Federal regulations require truckers to drive safely. They can't follow too closely. They're also required to get a certain amount of sleep so there are no drowsy drivers.
Nevertheless, with that many trucks on the road, driver error is not uncommon, and often truck drivers are under the influence of drugs meant to keep them awake. This can mean serious problems for you if you meet one of these drivers on the road.
Over the last 5 years, the number of accidents on the highways involving semitruck trailers has increased dramatically. In some areas, truck accidents have doubled. With common railroad carriers down, businesses across the country must move their goods via the roadways, and that transportation means many long hours for truck drivers.
