A & G All About Crash Truck Vehicles

What is a Crash Truck?

A variety of names refers to a crash attenuator truck. A crash truck, also known as a TMA shadow vehicle or a scorpion truck and is designed to safeguard individuals on roadways, such as motorists and roadside workers and prevent their risk of encountering a collision. 

How Do Crash Trucks Work?

Crash trucks keep individuals and motorists on the highway safe by the use of specially designed materials and technology that makes the use of crash truck vehicles extremely important for roadway safety. Indeed, the use of crash truck vehicles means the difference between life and death on the highway. 

Preventing Collisions with TMA’s

TMA’s, also known as truck-mounted attenuators, are the devices included within crash truck vehicles to produce kinetic absorption. Truck-mounted attenuators are attached to crash truck vehicles and act as a cushion and a barrier between the impacting vehicle while absorbing the impact of the collision. 

Crash Trucks Include Solid Materials For Safe Road Work

Truck-mounted attenuators contain solid and impact-resistant materials including a solid frame made of cartridge and strut and aluminum tubes. Any kind of road work in high-traffic areas, such as roadway paving, traffic control and even moving, benefits from the use of a crash truck.
