Trucks are responsible for moving America—both by transporting goods and by transporting people across country. Thousands of trucks transport goods and people every single day throughout the Chicago area. With the high number of trucks, come a high number of devastating accidents. In a truck vs. car accident in Chicago, it is usually the car that bears the brunt of the collision, with car drivers suffering massive injuries and frequently, the loss of life.

The tremendous size and weight of a truck makes it impossible to slow down quick and “stop on a dime.” Many car drivers do not realize that the stopping distance for large trucks is significantly longer than for light cars and motorcycles.
