Deadhead trucking is also particularly dangerous. Trailers and tractor cabs are designed to function a certain way while they’re hauling a full or mostly full load of goods. When a trailer is empty, then there’s no weight to hold it down or keep it under control on the road. The trailer can move unpredictably, and it can also be more prone to slip, swerve, or overturn.
According to one long term research study, trucks hauling an empty load are 2.5 times more likely to be involved in an accident.
Dry van trailers are especially dangerous during deadhead runs because they have high walls that can be caught in winds. When enough wind pushes on the side of a deadhead trailer, it can knock it over and cause a truck rollover accident.
