That doesn't look like 8 seconds of stoping time.. we are all human and make mistakes driving. For every person that has cut me off , ten have allowed me to get over safely..if you get a ticket you pay it and that's the end . If we get three tickets with in two years we get our drivers license suspended . So we get edgy sometimes..

Some semi truck drivers are absolute ass holes and in the middle lane will ride your ass even tho there's a passing lane on both sides of you empty! Why? You shouldn't even be doing 65+ mph when speed limit is 55! But with that said, I'm sick of seeing cars cut off trucks and hit the brakes and/or turn in front of them and cause them to Jack knife! But it's no one single parties fault...

Has any one ever notice that Truck Trends never has any real data of there own? It's always info from the European market that they give a update on. Funny how they only show Volvo big rigs and I thought all Volvos were supposed to be safe!

It is the idiots that cut them off and drive off into the distance that are to blame!

Poor driving by 4 wheel drivers is the main cause of the accidents. 90% of the people have no concept on how big vehicles handle. They have no common sense. Common sense is not all that common.

Why blame the truckers? Its other ppl that are so stupid they sit in there blind spots cut em off all the time you try stopping a big truck like thats going that fast and haulin that weight fast enough to not hit the idiot in front of them

Of course you all blame the truck driver because you don't want take any responsibility for driving and texting or reading or putting on make up or just not paying attention. Of course you don't look at the whole picture that the trucking company that that driver is least on Tue or working for may be pushing them really hard and then of course there's the fact of no return for the truck driver if everybody wakes up and realizes if these big trucks don't move we won't have as much as a piece of bubble gum to eat and a section of toilet paper to wipe our butts with but yet when you all go shopping at the stores you don't realize how those products get there if big trucks don't move this country don't function so what is needed is more respect for the drivers along with better pay like I said if they don't move we don't eat we don't have clothes we have nothing!!!!!!!

Yes of course blame the truckers who actually know how to drive and not all these retarded drivers who cut in front of trucks and slam on they brakes and then expect big fat check from the insurance company....

Well, the article said it . . . Fatalities increase greatly over 45 mph. So guess what's coming down the line for truckers . . .

In the sutistics their classification of big truck is anything licensed over 24 ton is a big rig. Its not just semis but trash trucks ups trucks and the list goes on its not just over the road trucks

don't think that the study ever focused on thems that dislike the big rigs as being the cause of the truck drivers having all of those accidents in the first place.

The other thing is what do they define as a "truck"?. Varies from country to country.

All this stuff about people cutting in front of truckers and not giving enough space to stop,...absolutely true. Know what else is true? There's a lot of truckers out there who need an attitude adjustment. I've had some pretty scary encounters with psycho truckers. Had a rig run an inch from my bumper when I was just doing the speed limit. There is no defense for this.

No, IDIOTS in the road are the cause. Trucks are just something idiots don't seem to understand at all and treat them like little Priuses rather than 70' long, 30,000lb tractor trailers!

Scott Herold

I do a lot of 11 and 13 axle trailer work and I'll be 250,000lbs or over sometimes, and people cut in front of me and stop all the time. The ignorance I see totally amazes me sometimes.

The only beef I have with big rigs is when they won't stay in their right lanes. They have no right to slow everybody else down while they take forever to pass someone that's going 1/2 MPH slower than they want to go. If they would follow the laws about staying out of the left lanes traffic would go so much smoother.

I drive a Big Rig everyday and someone will cut me off, pull out in front of me, and/or stop for no reason in front of me. Many four wheelers need to understand that me are NOT cars.

Neal Van Ness

So take away the license's of the dumbass drivers that cut them off all the time... That should be effective.

And more than half the world doesn't know how to merge onto a freeway they come to a damn stop.....we can't stop so either merge right or stay off the freeway

Amber Carnett

Wr do when we can move over most of the time we have some idiot riding along side of us not speeding up nor slowing down....same goes for four wheelers when we are trying to merge or change lanes don't speed up just to get in front of us..that's the stupidest thing you could do

Kenneth Aube

But if these 18 wheelers would followed The rules like we have 2 like move over to merging 4 whellers it would help

Most Truck drivers are professionals. It requires special training to drive a truck so it makes no sense to say truck drivers are the cause of accidents. That's like saying doctors are the cause of majority of deaths.

The most dangerous truck on the road is one that is running empty. A loaded truck can stop easier. The empty truck will slide and jackknife more easily. Even worse is a bob-tail tractor on wet or icy road. There very little weight on the drives axle(s) and it can and will spin out very easily.

European statistics show that 90% of road accidents are caused by human factor, but only 25% of accidents due to human factor are caused by truckers!

Trucks loeded can't stop on a dime when dumbass drivers cut them out because they don't wanna be stuck behind a slow moving rigg people never let trucks over or in front so we need to cut cars out in order to proceed on the road, #respect truckers
