Semi Truck Accidents

There are hundreds of thousands of Semi Trucks that drive through San Luis Obispo every year.  It is critical to the importance of our central coast town that they safely travel through.  When these Semi Trucks do not follow the rules of the road, they threaten the safety of all the San Luis Obispo drivers.

 

Truck drivers have a much larger truck, and the capacity to much more seriously injure anyone involved in wreck with a Semi Truck.  If there is any poor judgement on behalf of the truck driver such as:

  • Speeding
  • Sudden lane changes
  • Not looking in the trucks large blind spots
  • Any illegal turn.
  • Looking left while turning right into a crosswalk (pedestrian)
  • Any load that falls off the truck.
  • Using a cell phone will driving
  • Alcohol
  • Other Drugs

If any of the above are involved, the truck driver has not been reasonable in their operation of their enormous truck, and can be held responsible.  If we do not hold these truck drivers responsible for being careful with their job, it will further endanger other San Luis Obispo drivers.
