Is inexperience to blame for the rising number of trucking accidents?
Truck drivers are in huge demand, and companies are working day and night to find new recruits. Yet many new employees only stick with the job for a few months before leaving the field entirely.
One of the reasons why trucking companies have such a hard time finding a stable workforce is due to the nature of the job. Truckers must endure long hours of lonely, stressful work far from home. They follow uneven schedules, get little exercise, and often eat unhealthy meals.
The constant need means that many drivers lack the experience possessed by past generations of transportation pros. In fact, thousands of today’s truck drivers are recent graduates of one of the many seven-week truck driving schools scattered across the country.
In these schools, they learn the basics of their profession before being put in charge of a massive motor vehicle hauling up to 80,000 pounds of cargo at high speeds.
As newcomers, they usually get the least desirable assignments, like routes that take them straight into congested city traffic or along desolate stretches of lonely highway.
This combination of constant stress, utter inexperience, and poor working conditions may explain why America’s roads are the scene of over 415,000 crashes involving large trucks every year. These accidents kill more than 4,000 Americans and injure 87,000 others annually.
