Truck Smashes Into Overpass

You know those signs that tell you how tall the upcoming overpass is while driving on the highway? Those aren’t there just to offer you trivial information. Trucks can only pass under certain heights and must always be aware of how tall an overpass is. This Long Island commuter noticed a truck driving on a car-only parkway and expected trouble. Sure enough, the tractor trailer smashed into an overpass which was too short. Ouch.

Russian Truck Driver Barely Avoids Crash By Slamming Brakes

Always give semi-trucks respect and room on the road. Stopping in your sedan may take only a few moments, but a tractor-trailer may take five times as long with all the weight they are hauling. One Russian commuter was nearly flattened by a speeding truck whose driver was conscious enough to be ready to stop. Thankfully, the naturally upset truck driver was able to stop with no one getting hurt and only a small scrape to his tractor.

Walmart Introduces New High Tech Delivery Truck Prototype

Walmart is America’s biggest box store, so it goes without saying that they have a very large fleet of tractor trailers. 

The company has recently unveiled plans for a new truck, called the Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience, or WAVE.

The driver sits in the center of the prototype truck in an advanced digital cockpit which allows for a more aerodynamic shape. The truck is also powered by a hybrid power-train and is composed of lightweight materials.
