What does the box data show about your accident?
While black boxes are mostly associated with airplanes, commercial trucks also contain a similar device. Newer trucks contain additional technology to monitor driver fatigue, prevent rollovers, and note proximity to vehicles ahead of the truck or in a blind spot. The job of the black box is to store the following data related to driver performance:
- Speed control
- Engine RPMs
- Engagement of the clutch
- Following distance
- Sudden and hard brake applications
- Hours traveled that may exceed regulations
- Maintenance issues and problems
- Tire pressure
