Truck accidents are the most dangerous and fatal type of motor vehicle accidents due to the size, weight, and speed of these large trucks. In 2010, there were over 412,000 truck accidents in the United States. Of these tractor-trailer accidents, there were 3,380 fatal truck accidents. In Alabama alone, there were 105 fatal truck accidents in 2010.
Tractor Trailer accidents can occur for various reasons; however, some of the more common reasons include:
- Defective components and mechanical failure
- Driver fatigue
- Excessive speed in order to meet tight delivery deadlines
- Improper or overloading of the truck
- The driver leaving an insufficient amount of space between other vehicles
In January of 2000, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) was established as a separate administration within the U.S. Department of Transportation. The primary purpose of the FMCSA is to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses. The FMCSA regulates truck size, weight, and driver conduct in order to protect drivers on the road.
