Ever worry about the safety record of the guy or gal behind the wheel of a big rig? These are just about the biggest vehicles you'll see sharing the highway with your full-size or midsize pickup truck, but don't jump to conclusions about their safety records.
According to the Commercial Carriers Journal, fatality rates for all vehicles have been dramatically falling for the last 35 years, but in rear-end collisions involving a big rig and a passenger vehicle, cars and trucks were responsible for the accident more than 75 percent of the time (and in head-on collisions, 87 percent of the time).
The CCJ put together an infographic with all sorts of current accident data from the Department of Transportation; we thought you might think it was interesting too. See below.
