Many people think that trucks are safer than all other forms of transportation due to the fact that most truckers are more experienced and better trained than other drivers who drive personal vehicles. On the other hand, a truck accident also has a greater chance of causing extreme devastation, accidents and fatalities due to the size of the vehicle.
A new trucking law has been proposed in North Carolina that states that the truckers are allowed to operate the truck on the road for a longer time period than what was allowed previously. The new law would also increase the maximum length of trucks that are allowed on state roads. However, the new law has encountered opposition by many Raleigh residents who believe that the proposed change would create more truck accidents than before.
