The trucking industry is one of the largest in the US. It is the preferred shipping method chosen by companies, transporting 70% of the nation’s commercial goods. That’s why large trucks are frequent users of Pennsylvania and New Jersey roads. Nonetheless, because of the responsibility of delivering so many products at the minimum possible time, trucking companies pressure their drivers to drive longer. In turn, this makes drivers sleep less, making them more susceptible to having an accident.
In this infographic by Wapner Newman, you will find how many accidents take place in Pennsylvania, which are the most common injuries and what errors might end up producing an accident. But especially, you will learn how to drive safely around a truck. Finally, remember to rest properly when driving so not to put other drivers in danger, and to call a specialized lawyer in case of an accident to make sure you are appropriately compensated for your injuries.
