Truckers must maintain a commercial driver's license (CDL) and obey federal and state trucking laws. Truckers are held to exacting standards because semi trucks and other large commercial vehicles have the ability to cause severe and fatal injuries to other drivers and pedestrians.
Despite the numerous laws and industry standards designed to limit the number of truck accidents, such accidents are still far too common, and all too often trucking accidents are caused by truckers who fail to drive safely. Examples of truck driver negligence include:
- Driver fatigue
- Failure to properly secure loads
- Failure to check brakes, tires and lights
- Weight violations
- Failure to maintain a safe distance
- Unsafe driving in adverse weather conditions
