As the residents of Colorado are keenly aware, driving in the mountains can be challenging. This is especially true for those who are unfamiliar with the level of caution necessary when driving through the mountains. Many truckers pass through Colorado who may be unfamiliar with the risks that are associated with operating such large and heavy vehicles through such challenges as:
- Steep grades
- Inclement weather that come up with little or no warning
Mountain driving can push not only a driver to the edge of his or her skill, but it can also place enormous stress on the trucks themselves. Tractor-trailers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Pulling that much weight up the side of a mountain and controlling its descent can sorely test the mechanical aspects of even well-maintained vehicles.
When these difficult to deal with factors are added to the other challenges truck drivers face such as fatigue and overloaded/improperly loaded vehicles, the possibility of a serious accident occurring becomes alarmingly high.
