Statistically, it is unlikely that you will be involved in a motor vehicle accident involving a truck because of the millions of kilometers that are driven on our highways.
However, if you are, the consequences may be serious or even catastrophic.
Even smaller trucks are bigger, heavier and more rigid than passenger vehicles.
If it is a large tractor-trailer combination, the differences are extreme.
Your car might weigh 1000 kg.
The loaded semi-truck might weigh 75,000 kg.
Your car might end up underneath the tractor or underneath the trailer.
