- Vehicle failure

Driver failure often times is biggest factor in 18 wheeler accidents. Due to notoriously tight deadlines, drivers often exceed speed limits, tailgate and drive recklessly. Many other drivers also drive while fatigued and often with only minimal sleep which often leads to these drivers falling asleep at the wheel or unable to pay sufficient attention to avoid accidents. Alarmingly, many drivers also drive while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
