Driving Under the Influence
Trucks are the cause of thousands of fatal car accidents on United States highways each year. In addition to the innate things that make trucks dangerous such as great weight, constant wear and tear, and size, the behavior of many truck drivers makes driving on the same road as these vehicles a very real threat to other motorists.
