Why Are There So Many Truck Accidents?

I’ve been seeing more and more truck accidents and bus accidents.  These are complicated accidents because there are many more restrictions on commercial drivers and commercial vehicles. But why do these types of accidents happen.  There are a variety of reasons that an accident can happen from distracted driving to bad weather, but here are some of the most common reasons:

  1. Failure of driver to set the truck’s parking brake during a delivery
  2. Driver backing up the delivery truck after passing the desired address
  3. Drivers making sudden stops or quick left turns
  4. Failure to yield while merging in to traffic
  5. Poorly trained drivers
