On The Road With Heavy-Duty Trucks

Here are some tips for sharing the road with trucks:

·        Don't cut off other vehicles-trucks and buses take longer to stop compared to cars.

·        Buckle up-again, trucks and buses take longer to stop, and you're safer buckled in during a rear-end collision.

·        Stay out of a truck's blind spots-if you can't see the truck's mirrors, the driver cannot see you.

·        Stay alert-avoid distracted driving.

·        Avoid frequent lane changes and aggressive driving.

·        Watch truck signals, and stay out of their turn areas-trucks have to swing wide to turn.
