Statistics show that over 500,000 truck accidents happen every year. Additionally, 68% of these accidents occur during the daytime and 78% happen over the weekend. Someone is killed in a truck accident every 16 minutes. The primary cause is driver fatigue. But the lack of awareness and improper routing cause the truckers to accidentaly hit low bridges, road construction sites, and even struggle against storms and low pressures.
