Because of their size and weight, commercial trucks can cause catastrophic damage in the event of an accident, including severe injury and death. Weighing upwards of 80,000 lbs, a tractor trailer can hit with the same amount of force as 25 passenger cars. According to reports published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), truck accidents resulted in 5,212 fatalities in 2005 - roughly 12 percent of the total number of traffic fatalities over the course of the year. Tragically, 85 percent of those killed were the occupants of the other vehicles involved or pedestrians. Because of the risk that large trucks pose to other motorists, truck drivers have a professional and legal obligation to exercise the utmost caution when on the road and abide by trucking regulations. Any mistake or lapse of judgment by a truck driver can result in a person's death.
