A little bit of human factors problem of Russian truck
Some incredible truck accident in Russia.
Recently, the top edge of a truck struck the traffic sign and stucked with incredible angle as if it is missile launching sequence. A bulky looking top edge looks of a truck called “Spill guard” looks useless. But it is somewhat important to guard because cockpit ceiling is not durable enough to endure rocks or sands spilled from load carrying tray.
Probably this accident was happened because they forgot lowering load carrying tray. More importantly, this accident indicates that there is no fail-safe system or alarm to notify driver that he/she forgot lowering back tray when they start driving. I know most of American and Japanese dump truck has an alarm for it.
This accident looks somehow funny, but really in the way if a truck stuck up on the middle of road. Hope they would put some alarm on trucks after this accident.
