18-wheeler trucks are among the largest vehicles on the road. And when these large, semi trucks collide into another vehicle, the consequences can be catastrophic. The sheer weight and size of large commercial trucks put passenger cars at a distinct disadvantage. And while many truckers are trained, safe drivers, car-truck accidents occur at an alarming rate. In 2010, accidents involving large trucks injured 20,000 people and killed 529 others, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Compared to passenger cars, large commercial trucks are often limited in their ability to brake, accelerate and see what’s around them.
