Large truck drivers and addiction to technology

There are many reasons why collisions involving large trucks occur, whether a crash happens because of inclement weather, the negligence of someone operating a passenger vehicle, the use of alcohol or drugs on the road, fatigue and other risk factors.

Along with following a medical professional's recommended treatment course, patients may want to address emotional and mental challenges.
