Getting into a collision with a large tractor-trailer or commercial vehicle is a scary experience. You are far more likely to sustain serious, life-threatening injuries than the big rig driver because of the difference in size and weight between your vehicle and the semi-truck.

The Dangers of Intersections
Have you ever stopped at a four-way stop and wondered if everyone knew the rules of who should proceed first? This is never more critical if a semi-truck is involved. Sometimes, truckers behave aggressively due to the truck’s size, or the trucker is pressed for time and continues on without stopping. This can result in a crash. The impact can cause serious injuries or result in fatalities.
In other instances, a passenger vehicle may not be able to see the side of a large truck particularly at night. The truck often moves at a slow speed after a complete stop and side lights on the truck may fail. This increases the risk that a passenger vehicle could broadside the truck.
Ways to Prevent Intersection Truck Accidents
Trucking companies can take steps to make intersection accidents less problematic. For instance, drivers can be trained adequately in safe procedures when approaching an intersection. Policy changes may be needed to enhance the procedures. In addition, drivers should be encouraged to make routine checks of side lights and markers to make sure the big rigs can be seen by other motorists.
