Large trucks have a constant presence on the roadways. While motorists are used to traveling next to semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks, this does not make it any easier. While large commercial trucks play a valuable role in society transporting goods throughout the nation, these vehicles are operated by drivers that are often required to travel long distances. Even when properly trained and educated about the rules of the road and how to safely maneuver and operate a large truck, this does not prevent all truck crashes from occurring.
Every time a truck driver gets behind the wheel of a large truck, they owe a certain duty of care to other motorists. It can be difficult to uphold that duty if they are overworked and fatigued.
