KENTUCKY TRUCKING ACCIDENT LAWYERS

Semi Trucks, Tractor Trailers, Big Rigs, 18-Wheelers … regardless of what you call them, big trucks are by far the most dangerous vehicles on Kentucky highways.


WHY ARE TRUCKS SO DANGEROUS?

WEIGHT

AVERAGE AMERICAN PASSENGER VEHICLE

4000 POUNDS

LOADED TRACTOR TRAILER

0 POUNDS

AVERAGE BRAKING DISTANCE
65 mph to 0 mph

With that much weight, it’s no wonder that a semi takes OVER THREE TIMES AS LONG TO STOP when braking at 65 miles per hour.

AVERAGE VEHICLE LENGTH

They are 3-4 times longer than most personal vehicles. It also takes a LOT longer to change lanes when driving an 18-wheeler. There simply is no “swerving out of the way”.

And when semis are involved in accidents, the results are much more devastating.

In 2012, there were 5,615,000 motor vehicle accidents, leading to 33,561 fatalities and 2,362,000 injuries. Semi Trucks, Tractor Trailers, Big Rigs, 18-Wheelers … regardless of what you call them, big trucks are by far the most dangerous vehicles on Kentucky highways. But why is that?

It’s simple physics: they weigh so much that when they collide with non-commercial vehicles on Kentucky highways and interstates, they cause severe damage.

For that reason, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (and Kentucky’s Motor Carrier safety laws) are in place to provide “Rules of the Road” for safe ownership, maintenance, and operation of these vehicles. Truckers and owners must obey rules that drivers of personal passenger cars aren’t required to follow. (see links below for some of these safety rules)

Unfortunately, trucking companies and their drivers frequently break the safety rules. Tragedy is often the result. Innocent people are maimed and killed on Kentucky roadways every year because truckers and trucking companies take shortcuts and ignore safety rules.
