How Can Visibility Impact Truck Accidents?
A trucker's ability to clearly see the road ahead of them is crucial to safe driving. In many cases, commercial drivers will find themselves on the road early in the morning or late at night, often resulting in visibility issues. This can be especially true when there is early morning fog, harsh weather conditions, or long stretches of dark highways. In many truck accident cases, visibility plays some type of role.
- They failed to slow down due to the rainy conditions
- They were unable to see a smaller vehicle late at night
- They failed to give full attention to the road, such as checking side mirrors
- They did not adjust speed for dust, smoke, fog, mist or other visibility issues
- They didn't properly clean their reflectors or lights for better visibility in bad conditions
Whatever issue may have disrupted their visibility, it can often lead to a serious accident. As trucks are so much larger than an average passenger vehicle, a collision can cause major damage to the smaller vehicle and its occupants.
