Understanding The Role Of Drugs And Alcohol In Truck Accidents
Driving an 18-wheeler takes an immense amount of skill, and there is no room for error on the part of the operator. Commercial truck drivers are held to a much higher standard when it comes to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and federal regulations clearly define the rules they are required to follow.
When truck drivers decide to get behind the wheel after using illegal drugs or drinking too much, it creates a serious hazard for everyone else on the road. Truck accidents involving a fully alert and unimpaired driver can result in serious catastrophic injuries to victims. Impaired drivers operating large commercial trucks create an entirely separate level of risk for other motorists.
