Large trucks pose safety hazards on city streets and rural highways even under the best circumstances. When truck drivers and transportation companies cut corners by overloading 18-wheelers or failing to properly secure loads, these vehicles become dangerous and capable of causing deadly accidents.
There are good reasons why federal regulations strictly limit the amount of weight a tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler commercial vehicle can carry. When negligent trucking companies overload trucks, these vehicles pose serious risks to other motorists. An overloaded truck or improperly-secured trailer requires more distance to stop and decreases maneuverability, making these vehicles more likely to roll over or jackknife when turning.
