What are the most common trucker behaviors that cause truck crashes in North Texas?

In North Texas and across the state the semi truck crash rate is much higher than almost anywhere else. While a lot of this has to do with our state being a major trucking route, it also indicates a high rate of dangerous trucker driving behaviors. Some of the more common ways that a truck driver can cause a collision include:
  • Driver distraction

  • Drug or alcohol use

  • Drowsy driving

  • Aggressive driving

  • Speeding

  • Driving too fast for conditions

While any one of these factors can increase the chances of an 18-wheeler collision, most drivers are guilty of multiple dangerous driving behaviors. For example, a driver who is tired is more likely to use stimulants to try and stay awake, speed to get to a rest area and drive aggressively. When drivers get locked into a dangerous cycle such as this, it is really only a matter of time until they cause a serious crash.
