Truck drivers could be driving with their eyes closed due to fatigue from working long hours. This may increase the possibility of having an accident.
Believe it or not, many accidents are not caused by the truck drivers. Most people are intimidated by huge trucks driving next to them, or don’t have patience being stuck behind a big, slow truck. So what do drivers do about this? They speed up and overtake the truck (ignoring placards not to do so), or speed up to avoid giving way to a truck wanting to overtake them.
Whatever the reason for accidents, they happen.
