Preventing Jackknife Truck Accidents

Jackknife accidents occur frequently in the US and injure many individuals and their families.  

In most cases these accidents are preventable and due primarily to driver error on the highway.   Knowing how jackknife accidents happen can help the drivers around the trucks on the highway potentially avoid being part of such an accident.

A recent article looked at what causes jackknife truck accidents and how to prevent them:

Jackknifing occurs when the tractor and trailer components of a semi-truck get out of synch with each other. The trailer then swings to one side, putting the rig into an "L" or "V" shape.

More often than not, jackknifing happens because the wheels on the trailer lose their grip on the road. As such, jackknifing is more likely to occur in inclement weather or in situations where the truck driver attempts to stop suddenly by slamming on the brakes.
