The transport of goods across the country is essential for the U.S. economy, but the drivers responsible for doing the transportation must act and drive responsibly. If a truck driver is in any way reckless or negligent, he or she could endanger not only himself or herself but also any other person on the road. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, many truckers neglect to drive in the safe and responsible manner with which they are charged, causing countless Americans to suffer the repercussions.

Reckless truck driving is extremely dangerous and can put unsuspecting drivers in dangerous situations. Five of the top dangers posed by reckless truck drivers include:
