16 Quick Tips for Safe Trucking on the Road

One of the most important jobs for our economy is truck driving. American truck drivers work about 60 hr/week and cover more than 100,000 miles per year. In addition to being one of the most important jobs for our economy, this also makes it one of the most dangerous ones. In 2020, 4,895 were involved in fatal crashes. Having this data in mind, we can notice that truck driving comes with huge responsibility not just for the driver, but also for others on the road. By improving safety, not only do we ensure protection, but also reduce costs related to accidents, as well as rises in insurance premiums.
