Sharing the road with a large truck can be an unsettling experience, even for a seasoned driver. At times it seems that truck drivers change lanes and merge into traffic without regard for other vehicles. Commercial trucks are also more affected by adverse weather or road conditions, and there is a serious risk posed by cargo if it is not properly secured. Tractor-trailers, big rigs, flatbeds, and tanker trucks dominate Pennsylvania’s roadways and place everyone on the road at risk if they are negligently operated.
