Why are semitrucks so dangerous on the roads?

There's no doubt that large, commercial semitrucks significantly increase the number of highway deaths and injuries here in the United States. As reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), big trucks were responsible for 8 percent of the automobiles involved in fatal collisions in 2015. Of the 3,744 large trucks that got into those fatal wrecks, 73 percent were combination trucks, i.e., semitrucks.

Trucker shortage drives prices up, raises safety concerns

If you noticed that prices are on the rise across-the-board in 2018, you are indeed correct. There are many factors that affect the economy and inflation, but a primary element in the higher costs at the cash register is the shortage of truck drivers all over the United States.

Are big rig truckers properly trained?

When large commercial trucks are involved in highway collisions, it's motorists and occupants of passenger cars who are most at risk of serious injuries and death. So it's fair to question whether the training these big rig drivers receive is sufficient for them to learn how to safely avoid accidents.

Big rigs and bad brakes: A dangerous combination

You don't want to mix a big rig and bad brakes. Large semitrucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and they're difficult and slow enough to stop when their brakes are functioning properly. Imagine one of these trucks operating with poorly functioning breaks, they're going to stop even slower and catastrophic accidents can result -- especially when they're trying to navigate traffic among nimbler and more agile small vehicles.
