A lot of people think that they know all that there is to know about trucks. And while they might know a few good things, nobody knows everything. For instance, some folks think that a full size truck can actually be too small to haul a four by eight sheet of drywall or plywood. That is just absurd, and the people who know the truth about trucks know it. While some fallacies are easy to correct, some others are just plain difficult to ever get around. After all, a lot of people are so set in their ways, that anything which goes against what they already believe is just going to get ignored.
Fortunately for those types of people, the truth is often so blisteringly obvious that it is hard to ignore. One of the first major truck truths is that trucks use more gas than normal cars do. The average truck is larger and less aerodynamic, which means it makes the engine work harder and it burns more gas than your average car. If you did not know that one, take heart. After all, people used to think that the Earth was the center of the universe.
One truck truth that a lot of people do not know is that trucks are atually involved in a lot more fatal car accidents than normal cars are. While these are typically involving large semi trucks hauling cargo while the driver tries desperately to stay awake behind the wheel, the fact is that a larger vehicle is going to be harder to steer properly. And because of that difficulty, no matter how well trained the driver might be, accidents are going to be a more likely occurrence.
