arteries have thick walls so that the pressure inside the arteries is maintained and blood flows also if their walls are thin they they will break due to high blood preesure in the ventricles. more

Arteries and arterioles have relatively thick muscular walls because blood pressure in them is high and because they must adjust their diameter to maintain blood pressure and to control blood flow. Veins and venules have much thinner, less muscular walls than arteries and arterioles, largely because the pressure in veins and venules is much lower; veins may dilate to accommodate increased blood volume. more
