A recently published study, conducted by the American Transportation Institute, highlights the dangers of semi-truck rollover accidents. Texas and the Dallas metro area were both high on the list of deadly large truck crashes. If you commute on one the most dangerous roads in Dallas, you might want to rethink your route:
- Central Expressway and CF Hawn Freeway/US 175
- SR 183, SR 114, SR 12 and SR 482
- 1-30/US 67 and I-35E/US 77
- I-35 W and Martin Luther King Jr. Freeway/US 287
All four of these locations had at least nine deadly rollover accidents during a five-year period. While safety experts are still looking at the data, deciding what to do about the dangerous area, there is something you can do to lower your risk of getting into an accident with a semi truck.
