Large trucks

Overview

Most deaths in large truck crashes are passenger vehicle occupants. The main problem is the vulnerability of people traveling in smaller vehicles. Trucks often weigh 20-30 times as much as passenger cars and are taller with greater ground clearance, which can result in smaller vehicles underriding trucks in crashes.

Truck braking capability can be a factor in truck crashes. Loaded tractor-trailers take 20-40 percent farther than cars to stop, and the discrepancy is greater on wet and slippery roads or with poorly maintained brakes. Truck driver fatigue also is a known crash risk. Drivers of large trucks are allowed by federal hours-of-service regulations to drive up to 11 hours at a stretch. Surveys indicate that many drivers violate the regulations and work longer than permitted.

The following facts are based on analysis of data from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS).

Schwinn
[Schwinn Paramont]
1977 Schwinn Paramount. (Larger Image) The name says it all – the top of the Schwinn line. Waterfordbikes.com has an excellent discussion of the history of Paramount bikes from their start in 1938 until the bankruptcy in 1993 of the original Schwinn company founded in 1895. (See Schwinn Timeline.) Schwinn today is part of Pacific Cycle. While Schwinn often had a reputation for building heavy bikes for kids, the Paramount line had a reputation for finely crafted, relatively light road bikes. I purchased my Paramount in the North Park area of San Diego on June 30, 2007 from an ad on Craig’s List for $50 with a Nishiki Olympic mixte frame 12 speed bike. That is obviously a great price. The very nice woman selling
