Trucking Mishaps: Who Gave These Drivers a CDL

0
ExpressTruckTax talks about weird and funny truck accidents Choosing the right institution to get your CDL training is important to ensure you get the best training possible. CDL classes can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months depending on the level of training a trucker is interested in getting. Obtaining your CDL license is a combination of in-class course work and on the road experience. A book won't help you learn everything and just hopping in a 55,000 lbs truck and just going won't either. 

Proper CDL training at a truck driving school is not the only ingredient to becoming a pro driver. It takes a bit of common sense to be a trucker. We understand that things happen, but there are some truck accidents that have us asking, "how?". Here are a few trucking accidents that have us asking, "what the truck, who in the world gave these drivers their CDL and how in the world did they get themselves in this predicament?"






TMT red and white truck with "sure we can" on the side stuck under overpass




















You might have seen this before, but we can’t get over how this driver thought he could fit under this overpass. They may want to put a sign on all bridges that say “bridge ahead may be shorter than it appears.''

Red dump truck caught on pole
















We think this driver wanted to take a swing on the pole rather than make a right turn.

Bus in China going up the steps on the street














If this is a foreshadow of what our streets will look like in 2080, we are in! It’s like an escalator on steroids.  


Class A CDL training truck crossing median






















If this is an example of "class A" training, how big of a curve do you think the instructor used, for this to happen?

Cement truck crushes building

This accident is definitely giving us Hercules vibes.


Truck takes wrong exit




















We’re pretty sure this guy missed his exit.

Do you think they noticed?

But first, a selfie.
