Title:Truck Crash Facts
Publication Date:Jan 2020
Type:Issue Brief

 

Abstract

Trucks are an important mode of economic connectivity in rural states like North Dakota. The size/mass difference between 80,000 pound trucks and 4,000 pound passenger vehicles, along with operational differences such as acceleration/deceleration times and turning radiuses, heighten risk for crash events.
