The magnets are tiny balls that are typically desk toys—they can be something to fiddle with or make a small piece of art. However, they are also incredibly powerful and can cause a lot of harm if ingested. There has been back and forth between the manufacturers of these products and those in charge of public safety.

Why Are 18-Wheeler Trucks Dangerous When Driving Through Work Zones?

Truck traveling on highway

To properly haul goods and services across the country, 18-wheeler trucks are often necessary. While these trips benefit the economy, businesses, and consumers, everything can change in a split second when an accident happens.

While there is always the chance for a large truck to get into an accident, work zones create special challenges for drivers in tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers. The challenges often have to do with space restriction. When road work is in progress on multi-lane highways, the crew may have to reduce the number of lanes for drivers. Vehicle occupants in smaller cars are at serious risk of injury or death in the event of an accident with an 18-wheeler.
