When conditions on the road get worse, safety becomes even more important. Whether you were in a truck accident at night or in the rain, you have to ask yourself whether or not the trucker took proper safety precautions. If the trucker's driving was erratic, perhaps he or she was unable to see properly. If you could not see the truck, perhaps the trucker did not take the right steps to make the truck visible.

When there is poor visibility on the road, drivers take certain precautions as a matter of safety. For example, if you are driving at night, you turn on your lights. Not only does this allow you to see better, it also allows other cars to see you better.
Since 18-wheelers are much larger than passenger vehicles, they need more than one set of lights to be seen properly at night and in other conditions with poor visibility. Tractor-trailers and other large commercial trucks are required to have reflectors on the back and sides of their vehicles to increase visibility and prevent accidents in the following conditions:
We understand what a big impact poor visibility can have on all drivers. More importantly, trucking companies and truck drivers understand. There is no excuse for trucks to be out on the road without proper reflectors. And it is reckless for drivers to continue in hazardous conditions when they cannot see the road.
