Texas leads the nation in fatal truck accidents. Unfortunately, this number continues to increase as more trucks drive on Texas highways. Many Texas fatal truck accidents are caused by poor truck maintenance or overworked, under trained, and hurried truck drivers rushing to deliver their loads on Texas highways and roads. Anyone that has ever driven on I-35 or I-10, understands the large number of dangerous trucks that are on Texas highways. Unfortunately, with large trucks or 18-wheelers driving on our roads and highways comes the potential of catastrophic damages.

Truck accidents and 18-wheeler wrecks can be the result of:
Bad Tires, Brakes, and Lights
Tight Delivery Schedules
Texas Truck Accidents and the Price of Oil
With the cost of fuel increasing, trucking companies are having to cut back on truck maintenance, driver training, driver pay, and other safety precautions. These cut backs will probably result in more fatal trucking accidents. Because of the price of oil and maintenance cut backs, trucking companies will have trucks on the road with worn tires, bad brakes, and burned out lights. These more dangerous trucks will have truck drivers that have tight delivery schedules, are being paid less, and have had less training. The pressures on these overworked truck drivers will create driver fatigue, speeding, tailgating, and aggressive driving.
Keep in mind that more and more truck drivers will be driving more dangerous trucks, be earning less, and will be on tighter delivery schedules. It is always a good idea to avoid driving beside large trucks and make sure that you give an aggressive truck driver room on the highway. Avoid truck drivers that tailgate and be aware that many of them have improper mirrors and some have unsafe loads.
