How Semitrucks Are Crash Tested | Carsplainers | Insider Cars

Just like consumer cars have to undergo crash testing, so do commercial semitrucks. While some of these tests are the same that production cars undergo, others are designed specifically for trucks. Thanks to trucking companies like Volvo and Scania as well as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, safety standards for these trucks are only improving. Correction: In the video, we said that the trucks weighed 120 tons. The trucks are 8 to 12 tons and crashed at speeds of 30 to 50 miles per hour. We regret the error. Thank you.
