Comments from Our Trucking Attorneys
There is no excuse for a professional truck driver to rear-end the vehicle in front of him. Truck drivers are taught to maintain sufficient space between their tractor-trailer and other traffic to come to a complete stop without an impact. Unfortunately, many truck drivers do not follow their training or are in a hurry and ignore the industry guidelines for space management.
