Undertrained Truck Drivers
The operation of an 18 wheeler is a complex and dangerous undertaking that requires a large amount of training and education to be able to manage safely and efficiently. Without this training, the trucker puts themselves and everyone else around them on the road at risk of an accident arising from their ignorance of protocol.
