Semi-trucks rule the roadway. These huge trucks have engines that hold over 15 gallons of oil and have over 12 gears. The trucks can also weigh up to 80,000 pounds and can be 80-feet long from headlight to taillight. While semis are the king of the freeway, they also have the ability to be incredibly dangerous to the other automobiles.
