Each year, traffic-related incidents claim the lives of over 3,900 people in the state of Texas. More than 530 victims lose their lives in accidents involving semi-trucks and other large commercial vehicles. The size and weight of these vehicles are more likely to cause significant harm to everything they come in contact with.
