Truck Driver Safety in Palm Springs, CA

When truck drivers are out on the road making deliveries or transporting goods, it is very important that they drive responsibly. It is also imperative that they put safety first. If truck drivers are not safe or fail to take precautions, they may cause a truck accident.

While many people may think that truck accidents are not that common, the truth is that these accidents occur quite frequently in the state of California. One of the leading causes of truck accidents happens to be truck driver negligence, which is why truck drivers should always try to be safe while operating massive commercial trucks, big rigs, 18 wheelers and delivery trucks.

Below are a few truck driver safety tips that have been provided by the talented legal team at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C.:

  • Truck drivers should never drive while fatigued. The truth is, many truck drivers have to work long shifts, which can make them tired. When people are fatigued, their judgment is impaired and they cannot react as quickly or remain as alert. Being tired and having impaired judgment is a perfect recipe for causing a major truck accident, which is why truck drivers should stay off the road when they are fatigued.
  • Truck drivers should take much needed breaks. All too often, in order to meet their delivery times, truck drivers will skip their breaks. This is never a good idea as truck drivers need to rest after driving for long periods of time.
  • Truck drivers should never drink before operating their vehicles. Driving under the influence is not only negligent, but also illegal, and can lead to catastrophic accidents.
  • Truck drivers should remain aware of other drivers and their surroundings. By staying alert, truck drivers can respond faster to situations, which may help them avoid accidents.
