Some of the most common collision scenarios accident reconstructionists encounter involve vehicles impacting the side of left turning tractor trailers. Determining how long it takes heavy trucks to turn is key to ultimately understanding whether other vehicles could have avoided collisions with the heavy trucks. The research presented here comprises many hours of live recordings and observations of real-world events which capture the characteristics of heavy truck movement in intersections. This naturalistic study analyzed when trucks turn, how they turn, the paths they take, and the time and speed needed for them to complete turns safely.
