There are few experiences more frightening than maneuvering around a semi-truck whose driver isn’t paying attention to the road. Because of the sheer size of these commercial vehicles, avoiding their erratic driving is very difficult. When trucks cross into your lane, run a red light, or swerve into your driving path, the results can be disastrous for you and the rest of your passengers.
Commercial vehicles — particularly tractor-trailers — are almost always larger and heavier than the passenger car, minivan, or SUV you may be driving. A semi-truck can weigh tens of thousands of pounds, depending on whether it’s loaded. When these machines collide with your street vehicle, you are the one that suffers the consequences.
