Beware of Tractor Trailers in Bad Weather.

Many of you have seen the headlines relating to the terrible multi-car collisions in the Midwest. We do not need major snowstorms, however, for icy road conditions or road conditions less than optimum to cause significant injury. Tractor trailers are always a danger to occupants of automobiles on the roadway no matter what time of year. Bad weather brings even greater dangers. Fishtailing tractor trailers can swipe at a vehicle and swat it like a fly seriously injuring all of the occupants. Moreover, trucks and tractor trailers carrying heavy loads are more difficult to stop than lighter, smaller vehicles such as an automobile. They pose great dangers on the roadway when attempts to stop them are unsuccessful. Accordingly, all of us need to be particular careful in the presence of tractor trailers on our roadways.
