It is dangerous when any vehicle speeds on the interstate or highway in New York – but did you know that it is significantly more dangerous for commercial trucks and big rigs to speed? Our truck accident attorneys provide three reasons why:
Why do commercial trucks speed so often? Unfortunately, truck drivers are often under extreme pressure to meet deadlines and deliver loads. In general, the more miles they cover per day, the more money they make. This means that truckers will deliberately speed in New York despite the dangers they pose to other drivers.
What can you do to prevent truck accidents due to speeding? If you see a truck speeding, you can usually call the number posted on the back of the truck to report reckless driving. If a truck is endangering other drivers on the road, you can also call the local police or 911 to report an emergency situation involving a dangerous truck driver.
