Why and how are tractor-trailers regulated in the U.S.?

Everyone has seen the large tractor trailers hauling goods from coast to coast. Most are aware of how important semi-trailers are to the economy. However, some are not aware of the dangers these tractor-trailers can pose while traveling with regular passenger vehicles on the roads. The reality is that these large tractor-trailers can cause devastating truck accidents and because of this, the industry is highly regulated.

Cattle truck collides with station wagon on Nevada road

A loaded semitrailer truck can weigh 25 times more than an average passenger car. That simple fact explains why truck accidents are among the most deadly accidents on Nevada roads. Any collision between a big-rig truck and a smaller vehicle can lead to catastrophic injuries for the people in the smaller vehicle.

Some of the most serious accident on Nevada roadways involve large commercial trucks. Because 18-wheelers and other large trucks are so much bigger and heavier than passenger cars, any collision between the two can easily lead to catastrophic injury and death for the occupants of the smaller vehicle.
