Large trucks are very dangerous on highways and roads when truck drivers or the companies that employ them act negligently. Many factors can lead to devastating accidents, such as inadequate maintenance, improper hiring practices, failing to load trucks properly, or using damaged truck parts. When carrying a full payload Semi-trucks and 18-wheelers weigh up to 20 times as much as most passenger vehicles. Giant trucks also require more time and space to come to a full stop, have less maneuverability, and are far more top-heavy than other vehicles. These factors can easily lead to disaster.
