100+ Years of Legal Experience Among Our Portland Truck Accident Lawyers
Semi-trucks can be up to six times larger than passenger vehicles in terms of size, weight, and engine size. While most cars weigh approximately 5,000 pounds, big rigs can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. This size disparity highlights the risk large commercial vehicles pose to other motorists.
By law, truckers are required to follow guidelines such as:
- Taking regular rest breaks
- Not driving over the maximum number of miles allowed
- Maintaining the vehicle according to standards
- Observing weight and loading restrictions
- Strictly following the zero drug and alcohol policy for drivers
