Why Are Commercial Trucks More Dangerous Than Other Vehicles?

The biggest reasons commercial trucks are more dangerous than other vehicles include:

  • Trucks weigh more, which means that when they crash into a smaller vehicle, it will result in much more severe injuries.
  • Trucks make wider turns than smaller cars which causes them to sometimes sweep other vehicles or crush vehicles located alongside them.
  • Trucks have more tire blowouts, which causes the truck driver to lose control of the vehicle. The debris from tire blowouts is also dangerous to other drivers.
  • Trucks take longer to stop, and when drivers are not careful while stopping, they may crash into vehicles in front of them.

These are just a few of the reasons trucks are more dangerous than other vehicles on the road.
