Truckers Who Tailgate, Speed and Drive Dangerously Can Cause Serious Arizona Truck Accidents

Looking in your rearview mirror and seeing a truck riding your bumper is not a pleasant experience, by any means. Neither is having a truck crowd you on the road or cut you off in traffic.

Truckers are under the gun and they often drive recklessly or even aggressively, to deliver their loads on time. Some trucking companies only pay drivers on the miles that are driven, which puts increased pressure on them to drive as far as they can, in the shortest amount of time possible. These demands can make truckers feel stressed, exhausted and short-tempered.

Any driver, who operates a vehicle aggressively, puts everyone at risk. However, a trucker who is aggressive can be even more dangerous, as the vehicle he or she is driving far outweighs the average passenger car.

Some examples of aggressive driving that can lead to Arizona truck accidents include the following:

  • Tailgating
  • Running a red light
  • Speeding
  • Excessive lane changing
  • Unsafe lane changing
  • Failing to yield
  • Weaving in and out of traffic
  • Flashing lights
  • Honking

If you have been hurt in an Arizona truck crash caused by an aggressive or reckless truck driver, you may be able to recover compensation.
