How Long Does It Take For an 18 Wheeler to Fully Stop?

Do you know how long it takes an 18-wheeler to stop?

We handle cases involving tractor trucks which are better known as 18-wheelers.  One of the reasons why 18-wheeler are so dangerous is because of how long it takes them to come to a complete stop.  For example, if an 18-wheeler is traveling at 55 mph it will take them approximately 200 yards to stop.  To put it into perspective, it will take them the distance of 2 football fields to completely stop.  If you or someone you know have been injured by an 18-wheeler because they could not stop in time, then call us for your free consultation.
