When Truckers Tailgate
Tailgating is the term used to describe driving behind another vehicle at an unsafe distance. This behavior is dangerous no matter what vehicle is being driven, but when the tailgating vehicle is a large truck, the risk of serious or fatal injury is significantly increased.
Truckers may tailgate when engaging in reckless behavior such as trying to:
- Gain momentum on hilly roads or steep declines
- Pass another vehicle in heavy traffic
- Pressure a smaller vehicle into moving over
- Catch momentum from the vacuum caused by other trucks
The reason a trucker may cite for tailgating is irrelevant when their actions cause an accident resulting in injury.
