Asheville is uniquely center to all the beautiful mountain activity that Western North Carolina has to offer. From the stunning views of the Blue Ridge Parkway to the ever growing beer industry of Beer City, USA, Asheville is central to the continued development of North Carolina. However, a booming beer industry and rising development often brings more traffic, construction, and congestion to Interstate 40, Interstate 240, and Interstate 26. Industry and development also brings much larger vehicles on the road – tractor trailers, 18 wheeled trucks, and “oversized load” trucks – all of which may lead to serious injury to other drivers if not managed and driven safely.
Mismanagement of trucks can cause catastrophic injuries to other drivers and pedestrians. Catastrophic injuries include spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, paralysis, loss of limbs, or scarring and disfigurement.
