Jack-knife

1) Term for very dangerous accident situation where semi-trailer of articulated combination pushes rear axle of tractive unit out of line so whole combination forms a 'jack-knife', usually completely out of driver's control.

Avoided by ensuring tractive unit and trailer are braked in a straight line and that rear wheels of tractive unit do not lock-up in heavy braking. See also Anti-jack knife.
