Driver Inexperience Continues to Cause Truck Accidents in Arizona
Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Mar 01, 2013 in Auto Accidents
Arizona is the destination for many goods, and the hub for many truckers traveling through the state in route to California. Thus, there is heavy truck traffic throughout the state and a great number of trucking accidents as well. Unfortunately, semi-truck accidents still account for 130,000 accident injuries each year, with 98 percent of the total accidents resulting in death.
When truck drivers are working on obtaining a commercial drivers license to operate these vehicles, the Department of Transportation enforces a variety of strict rules and regulations in regards to testing and training. Of course, it is becoming more common for truck companies to offer their new employees training and driving school required to obtain their commercial drivers license. The problem with offering their own driving courses is that they tend to be inadequate and push the drivers onto the road too quickly.
