Sharing the roads with large, cumbersome semi-trucks can be scary. It is even more frightening if the drivers lack training or are sleep-deprived.

Most commercial truck drivers are skilled and patient drivers. However, in addition to the dangers inherent in the size and weight of the trucks used in commercial transportation and shipping, a number of characteristics inherent in the business can contribute to traffic accidents.

These include:
1. Inadequate training as to driving technique, safety concerns, and defensive driving.
2. Systems of compensation that encourage faster vehicle speeds and more hours of consecutive vehicle operation than would normally be advisable.
3. Unrealistic schedules and expectations of trucking companies that encourage drivers to hurry, despite safety risks involved.
