Driver Error Too High
While many truck drivers do their best to get their rest, maintain a proper speed and avoid distraction, too many are pushed beyond their limits and make bad choices. Too often their company demands that they get as many loads as possible from point A to point B; in the smallest amount of time. This can force the driver to refuse, possibly losing the run or his job, or to push on, despite his reservations.

When Texas Semi Trucks Crash The vast majority of 18 wheelers travel thousands of miles each year and are not involved in a collision. However, when they do cause a collision they can do serious damage. If you have been involved in a crash with a semi truck in Texas you know this all too well. Do not settle for less than you need.
