Remember --Safe Motorists Always Respect Trucks (SMART). A research from IDOT's Division of Traffic Safety concluded that most of the crashes between trucks and other vehicles are occurring under the circumstances given below:
  • From Tuesday to Friday time ranging from 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
  • Sometimes due to clear weather, usage of speed or improper lane, dry roads.
  • When the driver falls asleep or getting distracted.
  • Age group of the driver plays a major role in such crashes.
    • When the truck driver is between 28-43 years old and the driver of the other vehicle is between 20-30 years old a major variation will be there in the way they both drives which may even lead to crashes and deaths.
