What defines a large commercial truck? According to the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL), a vehicle is considered heavy when it has a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of more than 4.5 tonnes. When a heavy truck is involved in an accident with a vehicle weighing approximately 4,000 pounds (the average size of a passenger car), the outcome can be catastrophic. A vehicle weighing almost 25 percent less is simply no match for a heavy vehicle. In an accident involving a heavy vehicle and a passenger car, the occupants of the car are 73 percent more likely to sustain a serious injury than the driver of the heavy truck.
