While it is impossible to completely prevent accidents from occurring, one can exercise caution and remain vigilant to minimize the risks. When waiting at toll gates, it is advisable to choose lanes on the left-hand side, as heavy vehicles often opt for lanes on the right. Wearing seatbelts and selecting a safe vehicle are essential safety measures, but in certain situations, there may be limited actions one can take to avoid accidents.

Why brakes of heavy vehicles fail?

Air brakes are commonly used in trucks and heavy vehicles. These brakes rely on compressed air, which is generated by a compressor connected to the vehicle’s engine. The compressed air is stored in multiple tanks and is later utilized to apply the brakes.

To save fuel while traveling downhill, many truckers choose to turn off their engines. However, by doing so, the air compressor ceases to function. Although most trucks do not have electronic power steering, they utilize the engine power to operate the brakes.

Overloading of vehicles is a prevalent issue in India. Commercial vehicles are often overloaded with goods, leading to congestion on the roads. Overloading not only puts additional strain on the engine but also significantly shortens its lifespan. Moreover, overloaded vehicles tend to break down more frequently and require frequent replacement of critical components.

Despite the presence of mechanisms aimed at monitoring overloaded vehicles, their effectiveness leaves much to be desired. It is quite common to encounter numerous overloaded trucks and heavy vehicles on the roads, posing a significant threat to other motorists.
