Semi-trucks make up a large percentage of travelers on the road in Illinois every day. We see them on highways, suburban streets, and rural roads as they reach their destination. Eighteen-wheel semis are incredibly heavy, have multiple blind spots, and are much harder to control than cars. This means any poor driving habits practiced by the truck driver can be magnified by the size of the truck.
That’s why accidents involving semi-trucks are more likely to cause fatalities than other vehicles, given the number of hazards they pose when on the road. Many drivers are nervous driving near them when they are around. Rightfully so. A semi-truck can be transporting loads that weigh thousands of pounds, making any crash a major, catastrophic incident.
