What do truckers deal with that may increase the risk of a crash?

The chances are likely that whenever you are on the road, especially on a freeway, you will encounter large trucks making their deliveries. You already know that semis can cause devastating injuries to other motorists in a collision, but you and other Louisiana residents may not understand the pressures that truck drivers are under, which may increase their chances of getting into an accident.

How many hours can a trucker work?

Most people in Louisiana have what one might call a reasonable fear of being involved in an accident with a big rig. Semi trucks are so large that anyone in any type of standard passenger vehicle would be at a serious disadvantage in a crash. Motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians have even less protection and stand to face even more serious consequences if hit by a commercial truck. Fatigue is a commonly known factor in some large truck crashes but there are strict rules in place by the federal government designed to minimize this risk.
