Highways are dangerous enough without the presence of a tractor-trailer or another large vehicle. However, when a tractor-trailer becomes involved in a crash, the consequences may be greater, causing serious injuries and the possibility of fatalities. Extreme congestion on New Jersey highways further compounds the danger.
