Truck Accident may be caused by many different factors.  However, any in-depth study of truck accidents would likely determine that most truck accidents are caused by truck drivers violating regulations restricting the number of hours they are allowed to drive per day and per week.  Because the truck drivers are not complying with the regulations regarding the number of hours they may spend behind the wheel, they often fail to maintain accurate log books to document their driving time.  Failing to maintain accurate log books is also a violation of regulations that truck drivers are required to follow.  A truck driver’s failure to comply with the regulations often results in them driving without adequate rest leading them to be inattentive to the road conditions and traffic surrounding them.
