Today, large commercial trucks dominate America’s highways as they carry nearly 70% of all merchandise shipped in this country – that amounts to $671 billion per year! Big rigs range from 18-wheelers and tractor-trailers to multi-wheeled vehicles with trailers that haul personal and commercial goods.
It is common for truck drivers to drive longer hours than permitted by law, adding to the chance of a crash due to driver fatigue. A trucker may be forced by their corporate employer or owner to continue work past the legal limit, risking personal injury or wrongful death from inadequate rest. Additionally, many large trucks have not been properly maintained and lack proper safety equipment making them hazardous on our highways.
