It can be intimidating for drivers of smaller vehicles to share the road with 18-wheelers and other large trucks. The momentum of these larger vehicles means that any collision with them is likely to cause serious injury or death to drivers or passengers in smaller vehicles. Truck drivers themselves may contribute to the likelihood of such an accident occurring by cutting important corners when it comes to safety. The neglect of needed sleep, food, and vehicle maintenance or abuse of amphetamines and other illegal substances in order to stay awake on the road can mean serious consequences for other drivers.
