Imagine this: Your middle schooler wants to learn all about your job and your day to day. You get the opportunity to have a father son day and you show him the ropes. He is excited and hopes to one day be just like his dad. The last thing you expect is that this will be the last day you ever spend with your child. This is exactly what a father faced last week. Although the exact details of how the accident happened have not been released, what we do know is that the father’s vehicle was involved in an accident with a tractor trailer on the turnpike.

As you know, trucks carry tons of additional weight as opposed to passenger vehicles. These alone means truck drivers have a bigger responsibility on our roads. They face bigger blind spots and slower brake times. Often times, they are also solely focused on staying on the road longer than is allowed by standard regulations. Companies often push their drivers to deliver more and deliver faster than what drivers can handle. This means truck drivers are under extreme pressure. They will often alter their log books by saying they took rest breaks when in actuality they didn’t. There are many reasons truck accidents happen but the most common are maintenance issues, driver fatigue, distracted driving, impairment, and speeding. Even the most minor mistake can leave devastating consequences.
