Large trucks and truck-trailer combos are unlike any other vehicles on the road. There are several reasons that these trucks present a special danger:
Accidents with big trucks cause more severe injuries simply because of the weight differences between a loaded big rig and a typical passenger vehicle. Also, an average semi-truck takes more than twice the distance to stop when traveling at 55 mph as a typical passenger vehicle traveling the same speed.
