All truck accidents have the potential to be catastrophic, but crashes are even more severe when the truck's weight exceeds the legal limit. Overloaded trucks pose a significant danger to all motorists. When a truck exceeds the legal limit as to the weight it can carry, actions such as braking, turning, changing lanes, and the like can become difficult. The excessive weight further increases the force of the truck, rendering it even more hazardous. Overloading can be done due to a variety of circumstances, including increasing the profit of the trucking company.
