California is considered as the second most dangerous state to drive in, based on a survey conducted in 2010. Around 2,715 fatal traffic accidents, were recorded in that year alone, out of which 235 accidents involved commercial trucks. These statistics are based on the data from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. This means that nearly 9% of all fatal highway crashes in California involved at least one big rig vehicle. These statistics matche with the national statistics. In 2009, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, one out of every ten traffic fatalities in the U.S. was a result from collisions involving large trucks.
Large trucks are hazardous, particularly on busy California interstate roads. The huge weight and size of trucks cause big trucks to take significantly longer to stop, in comparison to motorcycles, cars and other vehicles. Large trucks take up to 40% more distance to stop than a small passenger vehicle or car. Therefore, this stopping handicap has been a cause of major truck accidents causing fatal injuries to occupants of cars and other smaller vehicles.
