Today’s Semi-Trucks

 

Today, roughly 70% of all products in the United States are delivered by 18-wheelers. More than three and a half million people work as semi-truck drivers in the United States, according to the Census Bureau, operating roughly three million semi-trucks in the United States. Most of these semi-trucks on the road have exceeded Alexander Winton’s vision in many aspects.

Today’s semi-trucks are generally 70 to 80 feet long, weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, and have 18 wheels, hence the name, “18-wheelers” in many regions.

Though 18-wheelers are a huge part of the nation’s economy, especially here in Texas, their substantial size and power create the potential for serious auto accidents.

According to the NHTSA, semi-trucks are responsible for approximately eight percent of the deadly crashes in the U.S. This means, in just one year, more than 4,000 people died, and another 116,000 suffer serious injuries from semi-truck accidents.
