The holidays are upon us. Essential truck drivers are working even harder for us on the front lines, carrying us through this time to deliver our precious goods. We have seen an increase with commercial trucks on the road. So be courteous. Driving around commercial trucks can be dangerous, so make sure to take extra precautions.
The risk of an accident increases with these vehicles because they have larger blind spots, can not maneuver as easily, and take longer to stop compared to passenger vehicles.
Fielding law shares 10 safety tips for driving around trucks:
1 – Avoid blind spots
2 – Practice safe passing
3 – Allow yourself more time to pass
4 – Watch for wide turns
5 – Increase the following distance to four seconds
6 – Drive courteously
7 – Wear your seatbelt
8 – Stay focused
9 – Don’t drive drowsy
10 – Don’t drive under the influence
