18-Wheelers Have a Much Different View of the Road than Passenger Vehicles
Drivers of commercial vehicles often hit the road in predawn hours. In many seasons, this is the time when groundlevel fog is thickest, and the risk of accidents increases.
Semi truck drivers also may fail to take into account that their higher vantage point makes them better able to see through road spray caused by highway driving during rainy conditions. This can cause a rear-end collision with passenger vehicles that have slowed appropriately based on the conditions.
If you are in an accident with a large truck, remember to document the full details of the circumstances. This may show that the semi truck driver failed to use proper precautions.
