The average family vehicle weighs 2,000 – 5,000 pounds. Semi’s hauling tractor trailers can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. You don’t have to be an expert in math to understand that the odds are against you when you are involved in an accident with these huge machines. Add to the equation ice, sleet, and snow and the results can be catastrophic.
There are half a million accidents involving 18 wheeled vehicles every year. In fact, one out of every eight traffic deaths are a result of just such a collision. Many freight companies are neglectful of the safety standards needed to keep these trucks safe in good weather. When you are talking about winter conditions these lapses in regulation can be disastrous for people who are involved in accidents with these “Big Rigs.”
