Examples of commercial trucks include:
- Cement trucks
- Delivery trucks
- Freight trucks
- Tanker trucks
Generally speaking, large commercial trucks cannot start or stop as quickly as other vehicles on the street, and they have much larger blind spots. Commercial truck drivers are aware of these limitations and are trained to overcome them. Nevertheless, truck drivers can be just as guilty of negligence as anyone else. Fatigue and unrealistic delivery deadlines are common causes of big rig accidents.
