Trucking Accidents Involving Cell Phones and Texting
It’s a fact that cellphones and 18-wheelers don’t mix. Commercial truck drivers have under their control, an 80,000 pound potential weapon and they must display more caution when on the roads than others. Accidents involving semi-trucks commonly involve much more severe injuries because of their weight and size.
Though there are many safety regulations in place, truck drivers can become lax and think that they are experienced enough to drive and talk on the phone. After a few years, a commercial driver may believe that he is a good driver and that it would be okay to text while driving. But the truth is that this can be disastrous, even fatal for other motorists.
