24 Aug Drunk driver: even more deadly behind the wheel of a truck
You’ve seen the damage a drunk driver can do. Imagine what could happen if that driver were drunk behind the wheel of an 80,000-pound tractor trailer instead of a 3,000-pound sedan.
This enormous difference in weight is significant in relation to automotive accidents for a number of reasons. First, trucks’ higher center of gravity and heavy cargo loads make them more likely than smaller vehicles to lose control while navigating traffic. Second, the additional weight means the force of a crash with a tractor trailer can be devastating.
The potential for injury and property damage in an accident with an intoxicated truck driver is extremely high.
