Problems with Overloaded Trucks
According to federal trucking regulations, 18-wheeler and semi-trucks cannot exceed an overall weight of 80,000 pounds. Not only are overweight trucks difficult to stop, but the excess cargo places added stress on brakes and tires, resulting in brake failure and tire blowouts.
Heavier loads can shift during transit and lead in an unbalanced load. When a truck is unbalanced, a rollover accident is more likely to occur.
