Truck Accidents Involving Texting
Distracted drivers are the newest cause of serious highway accidents. Motorists believe they can drive just fine while texting but the latest statistics prove otherwise. Each day more and more accidents involve a driver who was texting or talking on the phone. This issue has become a hot topic for legislators and some want to ban all phone use while others simply want to limit it.
Even though an automobile careening out of control and coming in your direction can be frightening, imagine what it would be like to have an 18-wheeler headed straight for you. This is the situation faced by more and more drivers. They’re driving along on their way to work and a Big Rig drifts out of its lane into oncoming traffic.
Accidents like this are not only scary but they also cause serious injuries and fatalities. While the truck driver may walk away with only a scratch, the other motorists involved often sustain life threatening injuries.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA) has developed new laws concerning truckers using their cell phones while driving. This area is being strictly governed by authorities, but unfortunately, truck drivers sometimes ignore the rules. Many of them have years of experience and this causes them to become overconfident in their ability to text or talk on the phone while driving.
Statistic prove that drivers simply cannot fully focus on their driving and surrounding traffic while texting or talking. These mental and physical distractions can result in catastrophic accidents where victims lose their lives.
