Without a special permit, an 18-wheeler, one of the most common large trucks on the road, can legally haul up to 40 tons, or 80,000 pounds. That much weight moving at upward of 70 miles per hour poses a great risk of life-threatening injury to others. Although they are important to industry and business, large trucks pose a greater risk to motorists and pedestrians than other vehicles due to their massive size.
