Many truck accidents can be prevented. For example, falling asleep at the wheel, is one of the leading causes of truck accidents in America. Truck drivers drive long hours all over the country. Countless truck accidents could be prevented if truck drivers obtained the proper amount of sleep prior to and while driving their trucks. Distracted driving is another common cause of preventable truck accidents. Eating, grooming, using a cell phone or CB radio are some of the ways that people commonly get distracted while they are driving. Every truck driver should pay attention while they are on the road. Being distracted for one second could lead to a truck accident. Drunk driving can also lead to a truck accident. That is why you should never get behind the wheel of a truck if you have been drinking. It is better for you to pull over at a truck stop, call a friend or cab/uber/lyft if you have been drinking.
