Orange Truck Accidents On The Rise

By Brian Chase on September 30, 2011 - No comments

The city of Orange, California, with a population of over 140,000 is a constant victim of truck accidents, many of which were preventable. Here’s why: More than 450,000 large trucks are involved in crashes each year. More than 1,000,000 people are involved in these crashes. And many of these accidents are due to the trucking industry’s thirst for profit over safety of the people.

Some truck drivers are indecently trained for the operation of commercial trucks. Other drivers may be well-trained, yet the business model of the trucking industry does not always encourage safety first. In order to make a decent living driving a truck, the industry often makes it necessary to drive for extended hours without enough rest. This is a hazard not only to the driver, who is not legally allowed to do this, but to all other drivers that share the road.

Many truck drivers in Orange California, which is the located in the heart of Orange County, stay up long hours to meet quotas and therefore take energy drinks or methamphetamines, which further hinder their judgment and motor skills. Studies show lack of sleep is just as dangerous as drinking and driving, and fatigue counts for the majority of accidental traffic collisions in the United States.

With a large population of students from nearby Chapman University and Santiago Community College, it is especially important to improve the enforcement of truck safety laws, both on the side of the trucking companies and the drivers, who need adequate sleep and properly maintained trucks with quality equipment.

All motorists should be conscious of the dangers associated with sharing our roads with large trucks. If involved in a truck accident in Orange County, California, hiring an experienced Orange truck accident lawyer may prove essential to bringing you the justice you deserve.
