How do truck accidents tend to happen?

You don't see exactly what occurs, but a car in front of you collides with a semitruck. The truck goes out of control and hits your vehicle and three others before everyone comes to a stop. It's a chain-reaction crash that shuts down the highway and puts multiple people in the hospital.

Distracted driving takes thousands of lives

Think that it's safe to check that text message while you drive? Wondering if you need to pull over to give your child some snacks in the back seat, or can you just hand them back while staying behind the wheel? Considering when is the best time to change the playlist on your phone?

Drivers who can't pass bikes safely need to wait

Drivers may know that they are supposed to leave a safe buffer zone between themselves and a bike when passing the bicyclist. If a bike is moving the same direction, in the same lane, the cyclist has a right to that lane just like another motorist would. It doesn't matter that they're moving slower than traffic.

How truck drivers can avoid fatigue and stay safe

When researchers looked at how often truck drivers crashed because of fatigue, they found that around 13% of them experienced fatigue during accidents.
