These numbers show a few things: while there are still more UPS accidents than FedEx accidents, the number of FedEx accidents has skyrocketed over the past few years.

 

While you can’t always prevent accidents due to the negligence of truck drivers or their employers, you can drive defensively to avoid collisions by following a few key steps:

 
  • Stay focused and alert

  • Do not depend on other drivers

  • Keep your speed down

  • Have an escape route
