There are millions of commercial vehicles on our roads. Often times these commercial vehicles drive great distances without very many stops. Even though commercial vehicles have mandatory weigh-in stations, some do not stop, which is illegal. Commercial truck drivers also have to stop driving once they reach their 14-hour limit. They must take 10-hour breaks between each drive. Unfortunately, many drivers do not take these breaks putting all other motorists lives in danger. These drivers become tired and careless, causing major accidents that you could be involved in. Commercial vehicles can weigh over 80,000 pounds when fully loaded, creating an extremely dangerous situation when they cause an accident involving smaller passenger vehicles. Drivers of passengers cars, pickup trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles involved in large truck accidents often suffer catastrophic injuries. These accidents can cause spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and in some cases death.
