Connecticut drivers continue to read about dangerous truck accidents that occur far too frequently all over the highways and streets of the state. Some of these accidents are caused by slippery roads and other weather-influenced conditions, while others are the result of all too preventable human negligence. Deeply concerned about the number and frequency of tractor-trailer accidents in the state, the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles has developed a safety guide to help all drivers learn to share the road with 18-wheelers.
