Commercial trucks are much larger than conventional passenger vehicles. They can weigh 70,000 to 80,000 pounds, and extend over 70 feet in length. This is 3 times the length of the standard vehicle. Trucks like this have a more difficult time maneuvering and turning, take longer to stop, and have much larger blind spots or "no zones." In an accident however - due to the size and weight of the truck - individuals most likely to be injured or killed are the drivers and passengers of standard vehicles involved.
