Many people in California take to the roads to visit their families during the Holiday season. Some drivers might have more distractions than normal, while others might drink alcohol and then get behind the wheel. There are a number of hazards you could face from other cars, but there is also an even deadlier threat.
It is not only 18-wheel big rigs that can cause havoc on our roadways when improperly operated. A woman in Santa Rosa was killed by the driver of a loaded dump truck, who was unable to avoid colliding with her as she was riding her bicycle.
"Monster" is a term that applies not just to those customized, souped up, big-wheeled trucks people pay good money to see in arena settings. Because of their sizes and speeds, nearly every truck on the freeways and roads of California is worthy of the title. And when they are involved in collisions, you can be quite certain that the victims who suffer the most are going to be those in other vehicles.
Trucks and Commercial vehicles on California roadways can cause some of the most devastating accidents because they are so much bigger than passenger vehicles. Drivers of both passenger vehicles and large trucks must share the roadways safely. Unfortunately, each year, there are numerous accidents involving large trucks, tractor-trailers and commercial vehicles.
