Speeding truck accidents in Arizona often result in serious injuries
Speeding might not seem like a serious crime. But when you combine speeding with a large truck on a busy highway, such a volatile mixture can sometimes be extremely dangerous. Most of the time, truck drivers know how to maneuver their vehicles at high speeds on a highway. But all it takes is one false move and the result can be a serious truck accident.
The odds of a driver having an accident while speeding are three times higher than normal, according to a study done by the AAA Foundation. And since a speeding truck is traveling much faster than normal, accidents involving large trucks can sometimes be very severe or even deadly. That’s because the force of a crash is significantly greater at higher rates of speed. Specifically, the crash forces of an accident at 60 miles per hour are 300 percent higher than the forces of a 30 mph accident.
Time means everything to truck drivers. The faster they can get somewhere, the more money they can make on the road. But when a truck driver speeds, that speeding truck becomes a fast-moving weapon capable of injuring or killing numerous people in an instant.
