Florida Big Rig Statistics

Garcia & Artigliere

Are you aware that in a given year, Florida drivers are involved in more than 3,000 big rig accidents? In the United States, there are over 50,000 large truck accidents with about 5,000 of those accidents involving fatalities (see the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration website at http://ai.fmcsa.dot.gov).

In the fatal crashes, 39% were because of driver-related factors. These factors included failure to yield the right of way, speeding, failure to stay in one lane and not paying proper attention to the roads.

When on a Florida roadway or any other roadway, remember that commercial trucks tower over passenger vehicles. An accident with a commercial vehicle, such as an 18-wheeler, can cause catastrophic results. Do not forget – courtesy on the road can save your life!
