Despite what you may have heard, the truth is that truck accidents in cities, during weekdays are quite rare! Such are the findings on truck safety compiled by our friends at University Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Hamilton, NY. In order to engage with the immediate and surrounding communities, they create monthly graphics to share with local businesses. This month they created a graph on truck safety which they were kind enough to share with us. For more information go to https://www.universitychryslerdodgejeepram.net/. Their findings are below:
That 75% of truck accidents are not the fault of the truck driver is well known throughout the industry. Unfortunately, despite that, it is usually the trucking company that pays damages. As such, it is increasingly difficult and expensive to insure trucks. Part of this is caused by propaganda that is spread in order to taint jury pools, elected officials, and the public at large that trucks are unsafe. Kudos to those like University CJDR who use their platform to educate the residents and businesses of their communities.
