Sharing the road with commercial truckers is an inevitable part of life in modern America, but if you are like many motorists, you may do your best to avoid traveling near large trucks whenever possible. In addition to their sheer size and weight making them dangerous, truck drivers often face tight schedules and considerable pressure, which sometimes leads them to make decisions that place you and other drivers in danger.
No matter how large a truck is, the fact remains that trucks – ranging in size from light-duty pickup trucks to 18-wheelers towing multiple trailers – are larger than passenger vehicles and can cause a great deal of damage in traffic accidents. The size and speed of trucks, as well as their difficulty in slowing down or maneuvering to avoid an accident, can make truck collisions some of the deadliest types of accidents in California and elsewhere.
