Big rig accidents on local freeways can cause traffic to back up for miles, damage to the freeways and endanger other motorists.
However, the California Highway Patrol just released new information that suggests that the overall number of big rig crashes has been dramatically reduced in recent years, in California and throughout the United States.
The number of these kinds of crashes in the Valley area has decreased each year from 2006 to 2010. The records show that in 2006, there were more than 2,500 reported big rig crashes. In 2007, there was less than 2,200 and in 2008, less than 2,000. 2009 saw 1,600 crashes and in 2010 the number had dropped to 1,300.
The CHP believes that although the data for 2011 is not yet available, the trend will continue. They attribute the reduction of crashes to increased police awareness of truckers carrying heavy loads.
The biggest cause of big rig crashes is still the same though, according to the CHP. They claim speed is the most significant factor in these crashes.
