There are numerous accidents everyday in Florida, but many of them involve trucks. I drive to work on Interstate 275 in Tampa and at all times of the day, the highway is not only crowded with cars but also 18-wheel tractor trailers. As you can imagine, this makes for dangerous situations with stop-and-go traffic. It is not uncommon to see major accidents where trucks are unable to slow down for traffic that has abruptly come to a halt.
Due to the huge disparity between a fully-loaded semi truck and a small car, the passengers in the vehicles are often times severely injured while the truck driver walks away with minor injuries.
The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that Florida is consistently in the top five nationally for traffic fatalities involving semi-trucks.
