How Truck Driver Inexperience Can Contribute to Truck Accidents

Some of the specific reasons that truck driver inexperience can lead to serious truck accidents include that, when drivers don’t have the necessary training and experience, it’s far more likely that they will not know how to:

  • Safely operate trucks in poor weather conditions
  • Properly inspect trucks between driving shifts and/or identify when specific truck maintenance needs to be conducted in order to keep the vehicle in safe working condition
  • Drive defensively.

Additionally, without the proper experience and training, it’s also likely that drivers won’t:

  • Know the federal and state trucking regulations they are required to abide by
  • Be skilled at properly balancing and/or securing loads to trucks
  • Be skilled at maneuvering trucks in traffic, around construction zones and/or in other potentially challenging roadway conditions.
