Facts About 18-Wheeler Trucks
An 18-wheeler is a tractor truck which pulls several semi-trailers. The tractor has 10 wheels while each trailer has eight. This is the reason the name 18-wheeler was attached. These trucks haul an assortment of loads, and their weight is determined by the number of trailers. However, the weight limits are determined by state laws as are the number of trailers.
What Is the Allowed Weight for an 18-Wheeler
The uppermost limit for an 18-wheeler is 80,000 pounds. Compared to the 5,000-pound weight of a passenger vehicle, this weight can be destructive in an accident. Sometimes, truckers and the trucking company exceed the allowed maximum weight.
Exceeding the weight limit is a grievous act of negligence. Besides the crushing force, the excess weight makes it difficult for a driver to maintain control. Drivers are held to a tight schedule and often exceed the safe speed limit for a vehicle of a specific weight to get where they are going quicker and this can add to the lack of a control a driver experiences.
