18 Wheeler Accidents
Heavy Vehicles You Can’t Avoid on the Road
Driving next to a massive 18-wheeler truck can make any driver nervous on the highway. Many of these truck drivers are pressured by companies to drive long hours, carry heavy loads and get to locations in short periods of time. As a result of these demands, truck drivers are often fatigued and exercise poor driving behaviors, putting other drivers at risk. On average, an 18-wheeler truck weighs 32,000 pounds, which is more than six times the weight of an average automobile. These big rigs can legally weigh up to 80,000 pounds! Being involved in a truck accident can cause victims to suffer catastrophic injuries and, in some cases, death.
