Reasons Garbage Truck Accidents Occur

On a day-to-day basis the waste management industry operators in circumstances and surroundings that are different from what any other trucking industry deals with. Most trucking transportation businesses don’t operate in suburban residential areas and neighborhoods but the trash collection industry operates in these suburban type settings every day. Trash trucks operating in these suburban residential areas frequently encounter children, pedestrians and bicyclists.

Truck or garbage collection trucks make frequent stops on their routes. A trash truck operator may stop his truck hundreds of times each shift. Over and over these operators are stopping and starting, and getting out of their trucks to physically remove residents’ trash from their trash cans and receptacles. Often times garbage truck drivers will get distracted over the course of their collection route. A distracted or careless garbage collector working on narrow suburban and city roads and operating a large trash truck that has many blindspots and lacks maneuverability is prone to getting into sideswipe accidents, intersection accidents, rear end accidents, pedestrian accidents and bicycle accidents.
