Definition of big rig
- Five blocks of loading docks are packed with big rigs wheel to wheel, and through the night, buyers haggle … as forklifts tote tons of fruit and vegetables in and out of the warehouses.
- —Jane and Michael Stern, Gourmet, September 2000
- … your windshield has been broken at least once, by one of the rocks flying out from under the big rigs.
