When Truck Accidents Happen In Bad Weather
When bad weather plays a part in a truck accident, the truck driver and his or her employer will likely be absolved of responsibility, because the storm was an uncontrollable event, right?
Actually, there are numerous steps truckers and transportation companies can take to prevent accidents during storms, fog and poor weather conditions. For instance:
- Trucking companies can provide training so that truckers know how to react safely to inclement weather.
- Truckers take shelter or park during storms.
- Trucking companies and truck drivers can maintain windshield wipers, tires, brakes and other equipment to ensure safe driving during rain and snow.
