Commercial trucks are far more risky to drive than a regular vehicle. Their immense weight, size, and cargo loads make them difficult to control, which means that numerous regulations have been put into place by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in order to ensure the risk they carry is reduced as much as possible.
