Unsafe lane changes can lead to injuries to not only to other drivers, but also to the truck drivers themselves. Like speeding, this aggressive driving action is normally taken in hurried attempts to arrive at a destination quicker or under a specific deadline.
Haste, impatience, distraction, and fatigue in truck drivers can lead to catastrophic accidents. Unsafe lane changes include:
- Changing lanes in an intersection;
- Failure to check blind spot before attempting to make a lane change;
- Failure to signal; and
- Changing lane at a high speed
