Summary: According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, most large trucks weigh 20-30 times more than passenger cars, have a higher risk of rolling over and take longer to stop. In 2011, 3,373 people died in crashes involving a large truck, accounting for about 10 percent of all motor vehicle-related fatalities that year. Considering these facts, why are commercial truck drivers not required to go through formal training before being licensed?
