What Is Distracted Driving?
Most of us are tempted to multitask while behind the wheel, but commercial truck drivers face circumstances that can make them even more susceptible. They often spend long hours driving and both professional responsibilities and personal provisions can take their attention off the road.
Common examples of distracted driving for truck drivers includes:
- Texting on a smartphone (or using personal device)
- Reaching for food or other items
- Looking at a map or GPS device
- Talking or listening to CB radio
Commercial truck drivers face fines and other professional ramifications if caught distracted driving—but that hasn't stopped many of them from taking their eyes off the road. If you believe you were hurt by a distracted truck driver, call our Oklahoma City truck accident lawyers today.
