A large commercial motor vehicle can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. An accident with one of these heavy trucks can be life changing. To avoid an accident, licensed drivers must understand how best to share the road with these large vehicles.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has a “Share the Road Safely Program.” This program is designed to educate drivers about the operating characteristics and limitations of large trucks and buses. Education is the key to accident prevention. Most highway users do not realize that large trucks require more stopping distance than other vehicles. Motorists may also not be aware of the size of a large truck’s blind spots. According to the FMCSA, one-third of all crashes between large trucks and cars take place in the No-Zone.
Protect yourself and your loved ones with these simple driving tips:
When trucks stop moving, the economy stops moving. Trucks literally bring everything that you see around you (food, furniture, clothes, etc). Knowing how to safely share the roads with big rigs will help you prevent an accident and not only save your life, but your passengers lives too. It is important to educate yourself and others about the operational limitations of large commercial vehicles. Be a highway safety advocate and educate others about sharing the road safely.
