Semi-trucks are heavy users of our nation’s roads and highways. This trucking traffic is, for the most part, a safe and effective means of transporting goods. However, 18-wheelers pose very specific risks to other drivers and have caused some of the worst accidents on our roads today. Semi-trucks have dangerous blind spots. Their slow speeds in traffic can cause frustrated drivers to try to dodge around them, while their heavy loads can make it difficult to stop quickly at high speeds. The trucks also have high centers of gravity, making them more likely to tip when going around curves.
