Accidents involving 18-wheelers differ significantly from car accidents in various ways. Because, 18-wheelers have several monitoring systems, such as The Eaton VORAD Collision Warning System that is utilized by many commercial trucking companies to improve and monitor vehicle and driver safety.
The system records an event record, including driving speed, rest, sleep and other evidence. The system is equipped with forward and side radar sensors that detect the presence and movements of vehicles around the truck to alert the driver of other vehicles’ proximity.
