Miami Gardens Stopping Distance
There are many stories about commercial trucks causing rear-end collisions in Miami Gardens and other cities because a truck driver was unable to stop in time to prevent a crash. These types of accidents can occur for number of reasons. A truck driver may fatigued, drunk, or distracted, meaning that their responses are too slowed to allow them to break in time. Truck drivers are expected to be trained correctly and to know that their stopping distances are longer. They're expected to drive with this in mind and to give themselves plenty of time to stop. When they do not or when mechanical failure that is preventable causes a collision, those injured in the collision may have a legal claim against the truck driver or truck carrier involved in the accident.

Commercial trucks have longer stopping distances when compared with passenger vehicles. Due to their size and weight, they take much longer to stop than passenger cars. What this means for users of the road is that it is important to give tractor-trailers and big rigs added space. Following too closely behind a truck or allowing a truck to tailgate you can lead to a rear end collision or other type of crash.
Of course, even if you're cautious a truck driver may not take the needed precautions or may be facing mechanical failure or may lose control of their truck, which may not allow the driver to stop in time to avoid a collision.
