Common Types of Big Rig Driver Distractions that Cause Commercial Truck Accidents
Commercial truck driver distractions come in many forms, all of which have
potentially devastating consequences. As an aside, there are a growing
number of big rig accidents each year in which a semi operator was both
distracted and intoxicated at the time of a collision. The most common
types of distractions that result in commercial truck accidents are:
- talking on mobile device
- talking to a passenger
- using a navigation app
- referencing a map
- adjusting a radio
In the immediate aftermath of a distracted driver commercial truck accident,
a rig operator is highly likely to cover up what he or she was doing at
the time of the collision. Nonetheless, telltale signs of distraction
are likely to be found, particularly if a proper documentation of the
accident scene occurs at the time of the accident.
For example, as improbable as it sounds, and with the proliferation of
audio books, some drivers do read and operate semis at the same time.
If a book, newspaper, or magazine is found lying about the cab, that can
be evidence that this type of unacceptable conduct occurred.
The time stamp on texts and phone calls provide evidence of either texting
or talking at the time of an accident. Food wrappers and beverage cups
in the cab also provide evidentiary support regarding that a semi-truck
driver was doing at the time of an accident.
