We encounter aggressive drivers on the road on a day to day basis. They speed, tailgate, pass unsafely between cars. We know they are dangerous and we do the best to stay away from them. Unfortunately these aggressive drivers are not limited to normal size vehicles. These aggressive drivers are often behind the wheel of a 12,000 pound truck. Recently a study was conducted by DriveCam’s Driving Insights found that truck drivers involved in a collision were 6.5 times more likely to be considered an aggressive driver.

 

Reasons Some MO Truck Drivers are Aggressive Drivers

There is enormous pressure for truck drivers to meet delivery deadlines. This causes them to stress out and drive recklessly and dangerously. Another factor could be a lack of sleep. Truck drivers have to drive for long periods of time and often their delivery and drop-off schedules don’t provide them with much room to breathe.

Proving that an Aggressive Truck Driver Caused an Accident in Missouri

Obviously if the truck driver was issued a citation by a law enforcement officer, it can be easy to show that he was driving aggressively. But unless the truck driver admits that to the law enforcement officer or an independent witness observes him driving aggressively, a citation is unlikely to be given. If no citation is given and there are no independent witnesses then one way to show aggressive driving is through the truck’s automatic onboard recording device. Sometimes the data from the onboard recording device with show the speed the truck was traveling or even the braking patterns.
