Truck Lighting, Reflection And Visibility Accident

It is hard to miss a truck in broad daylight. Weighing in at roughly 80,000 pounds and standing at multiple times the height of a typical car, a big rig is not conspicuous during its travels. But nighttime is a different story altogether. To safely share the road with other vehicles, it is crucial for vehicles to be properly lit with functioning headlamps and other lights.

When a big rig does not possess proper lighting, it is hard for other vehicles to gauge their speed and the distance between their own vehicle and the big rig. This can result in accidents that cause catastrophic injuries and even death.
