NC listed in “Top 10 Most Dangerous Roads”

Road_07312014The "Tail of the Dragon"

A recent list names North Carolina's highway US 129 one of ten the most dangerous roads in the United States.

Specifically, the list mentions an 11 mile stretch of US 129, sometimes referred to as the "Tail of the Dragon". The nickname comes from the fact that there are 318 winding curves on this stretch alone. For the complete list, visit Upack.com.

Trucking accidents

Curves can be especially dangerous for truck drivers because they can't accelerate at a regular speed. Instead, they are generally accelerating and braking at every single curve. This makes it challenging for cars behind truckers on the road, because it requires constant attention and reactions. And more novice truckers may not be familiar with the kind of strategies it takes to maneuver a road like US 129.

In addition, trucks tend to drift into other lanes while negotiating sharp curves. For oncoming traffic, this is incredibly dangerous. And since the narrowness of US 129 doesn't allow for much shoulder space to move out of the way of a drifting truck, it can lead to deadly accidents.

If you've been in an accident with a truck

Trucking accidents can occur for a number of reasons, ranging from driver distraction, fatigue or driving under the influence (DUI). And being involved in an accident with a truck is especially dangerous because of their sheer size.
