Distracted Driving Leading to Truck Accidents in Lubbock, TX:

  1. Mobile Devices:

    • Truck drivers are increasingly using mobile phones for calls, texting, or browsing while driving, taking their eyes and focus off the road.
    • These distractions can result in delayed reactions to traffic changes and a higher risk of accidents.
  2. In-Cab Distractions:

    • Modern truck cabs are equipped with various electronic devices, including GPS, infotainment systems, and laptops.

    • These activities can cause manual and visual distractions, impairing their ability to respond to road hazards.
