Truck Driver speeding on bridge

Aggressive driving is a dangerous in any vehicle; but in a truck or trailer, aggressive driving can lead to a catastrophic accident resulting in injuries or death.

Aggressive Driving

Determining the validity of your claim that aggressive driving was the cause of a trucking accident is a crucial step in proceeding with pursuing action against the driver, owner, and/or insurance company. Here are a few common known signs of an aggressive truck driver:

  • Careless Passing: Utilizing blinkers and proper passing etiquette isn’t just there as a courtesy to other drivers; their use is mandated by law. Passing smaller vehicles careless can result in catastrophic accidents.
  • Failing to Yield: Failing to give the right-of-way or allowing proper time for oncoming traffic to pass
  • Ignoring Traffic Signals
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating: Like trains, trucks require far more time to come to a complete stop than regular vehicles. Following a vehicle too closely exponentially increases the likelihood of being unable to stop in the event of an interruption to normal traffic flow.
  • Unsafe Lane Changing: Changing lanes without notice or at an unsafe speed
