A semi-struck, also known as an 18-wheeler, can weigh up to 18,000 pounds compared to an average automobile weight of 5,000 pounds.  The length of time needed to stop a semi-truck can be 40% greater than the time needed to stop an automobile.  A collision with a semi-truck can be substantially more serious than a collision with an automobile due to the sheer size and weight of a semi-truck.
