Road rage, aggressive driving, asleep at the wheel. These traits are bad enough when it’s the driver of another car doing it. When it is the driver of a massive semi, its even worse.

Every year. As a result, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has begun cracking down on dangerous trucking companies.
