California has the second largest metropolitan area in the country and the nation’s largest container port complex with heavy truck traffic lies within the Los Angeles Metropolitan area. Southern California also includes cities like Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Imperial, North Hollywood and Ventura with heavy truck travel. Southern California also shares a border with Mexico, making it a very important gateway for international truck trade. According to the Department of Transportation, millions of commercial trucks move goods over the national transportation network each year. This staggering volume of commercial trucks on national highways has been a cause of concern for motorists who need to share congested roads with those trucks. Subsequently, the risk or threat of wrongful death or catastrophic injury because of truck accidents has increased.Reasons for Truck Accidents
The major cause of fatal truck accidents is due to the mammoth size of many trucks. Other reasons can be low visibility and large blind spots. Large size trucks can pose a great threat to a nearby vehicle in motion, explaining why it is strongly advised to always drive at a safe distance from a truck. According to the California Vehicle Code, the average weight of big rig vehicles on California roads is up to 80,000 lbs. As the average passenger car weighs only 4,000 lbs, the vast difference between the two vehicle types is a major cause of safety concern. Motorists traveling on freeways and interstate highways have significant reasons to be concerned about their safety. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, some common causes of truck accidents are listed below:
- Improper turning
- Parking on the shoulder
- Violating Commercial Motor Vehicle Laws
- Driving While Impaired(DWI) or under the influence (DUI) of intoxicating substances like alcohol and drugs
- Reckless driving or speeding with heavy cargo in tow
- Improper stopping at railroad grade crossing
- Driving while fatigued, using mobile telephone devices and texting, etc.
