Sharing the Road with Trucks
Tractor trailers, or 18-wheelers, are one of the biggest potential threats to automobile drivers. They are many times larger than the average car, and the drivers often have poor visibility of the road behind them. Many drivers work long hours, and often suffer from fatigue and distractions. If you’re in an accident with a semi truck, you will likely be seriously injured or even worse.

Tips to Sharing the Road
Like it or not, you’ll have to learn to share the road with 18-wheelers. Trucks make up an enormous part of this nation’s shipping force. Virtually every product in the country has, at one point or another, been loaded onto a truck for transport. Trucks are on the road practically every minute of every day. There’s no getting around them, so you might as well know how to safely share the road with them:
- Be especially careful when driving near a truck. They often don’t have good visibility, and may not be able to see you.
- Do not drive aggressively around trucks. They are larger and more powerful than you are, and you won’t intimidate them.
- Give trucks a good amount of space when they turn. Trucks often have much wider turning radii than other cars.
