Everyone has a smartphone, and we can’t walk down the street without having our heads buried in our cellular device, sending texts, and communicating on social media. That applies to drivers.

Big rigs, 18-wheelers, semis, tractor-trailers – whatever you call them, they are on every road, and one might be in the next lane, looming over you and your family. Big trucks transport cargo across the country, and because they share our roads, they are a risk to all of us. A big rig can weigh up to 80,000 lbs., so when one jackknifes out of control, the result is often massive damage. Traffic can pile up for hours. Many other vehicles can be damaged. Sometimes, tragically, several people can be injured or killed.
