In 2000, large trucks accounted for 4 percent of all registered
vehicles and 7 percent of total vehicle miles traveled. In 2001, large trucks
accounted for 8 percent of all vehicles involved in fatal crashes and 4 percent
of all vehicles involved in injury and property-damage-only crashes.
One out of eight traffic fatalities in 2001 resulted from a collision
involving a large truck. Drivers of large trucks were less likely to have
a previous license suspension or revocation than were passenger car drivers.
Almost 30 percent of all large truck drivers involved in fatal crashes in
2001 had at least one prior speeding conviction, compared to 20 percent of
the passenger car drivers involved in fatal crashes.
