Large commercial vehicles like tractor trailers, 18 wheelers, tankers, and other box trucks are inherently more difficult to operate. In fact, they are so difficult to operate that a special license is required which is only issued after a written test, shadowing another driver, and passing a practice test/road exam. One of the most dangerous maneuvers is a turn, especially in a city or urban area. This is because large tractor trailer that jumps a curb could cause significant damage to pedestrians and other motorists.
