While commercial vehicles such as cargo trucks and big-box delivery trucks are commonplace on Florida highways, that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be held responsible for a high percentage of devastating car accidents happening more often with every passing year. When we see these large freighters, most of the time we keep driving, desensitized to their place on our busy roads. Children may even wave to drivers, fascinated by the large machinery!
It should be clear: safe driving practices are anything but child’s play, and everyone’s responsibility. It becomes a public safety hazard when other drivers haven’t familiarized themselves with, or simply choose to ignore the rules of the road when finding themselves sharing it with a large truck.
