Big Rig Crash Statistics

Tractor-trailer collisions are more deadly than other types of road accidents. It’s primarily due to the large size difference between big rig trucks and other vehicles. A fully loaded big rig requires up to 40% more stopping distance. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), big rig trucks have increased by 30 percent since 2009. In 2017, there were 4,102 traffic fatalities involving a large rig.

The trucking industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that turns over massive profits. However, it must adhere to strict rules and regulations to help keep everyone on our road system safe. When the industry chooses to cut safety corners to keep up with demand and to improve their bottom line, they endanger motorists everywhere.
