The government has rules and guidelines for trucking companies and truck drivers to follow with the intention of reducing the number of potentially major accidents involving trucks. A push to meet an unrealistic delivery schedule or boredom on a long haul can challenge safe driving practices. Driver fatigue due to inadequate rest and meal breaks is the main factor in a large number of truck accidents. Distractions, poor visibility, bad road or weather conditions, speeding, traffic violations, tire blowout, load shift, and mechanical failure can also contribute to truck accidents.
