Here are some common mistakes inexperienced truck drivers make:
1. Not properly securing their load: This can lead to accidents and damage to the cargo.
2. Not checking their blind spots: Truck drivers have large blind spots, and failing to check them can result in accidents.
3. Speeding: Speeding is dangerous for any driver, but it’s especially dangerous for truck drivers who are carrying heavy loads.
4. Not taking breaks: Truck drivers are required to take breaks to avoid fatigue, but some rookie drivers may try to push through without taking the necessary breaks.
5. Not planning their route: Planning a route is important for truck drivers to avoid traffic, construction, and other obstacles.
