Q: Should I Call the Number on the Back of the Truck to Report an Aggressive Driver?
A:Calling the number on the back of the truck may be a good idea, but it probably shouldn’t be your first call. If the truck driver is driving dangerously, your first call should be to the police to report the dangerous situation and to, hopefully, prevent a tragic accident.
After you call the police, then you may call the number on the back of the truck to report an aggressive truck driver. However, remember that the trucking company may have incentives in place that encourage the driver to be aggressive. Some trucking companies may take the safety matter seriously to prevent public relations problems and the potential problems that can be created by a Georgia truck accident, but others may be willing to take their chances.
You may also contact the U.S. Department of Transportation and file a complaint against the trucking company on the agency’s website.
