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.
