Why Do Truckers Drive Aggressively?
It is easy to say that a truck driver drove aggressively because they simply were not paying attention or weren’t being safe behind the wheel. However, in many cases, there is a more complicated reason for a truck driver’s decision to drive aggressively. Oftentimes, it can be discovered that the truck driver was only driving aggressively due to the pressures put on them by their employer. For example, a truck driver who breaks the speed limit intentionally might be trying to complete a delivery route on time because the trucking company hasn’t designated enough time to complete it while following all rules of the road.
Who is Liable for Reckless Truck Driving?
In many aggressive truck driving accident cases, we can file against the trucking company that employed the driver as a defendant. The liability for the accident can be placed on the employer if we determine that they pressured or encouraged the truck driver to behave dangerously behind the wheel. The same is true if we conclude that the trucking company didn’t do enough to ensure it was hiring qualified drivers who would always stay safe on the road.
