Tips for safe driving near large trucks

It's understandable that you might get anxious when driving on the roads of North Carolina. Let's be honest here; the traffic can be downright unbearable. With so many accidents being reported on the news each night, it can be a little daunting to hit the road every morning. Here are some tips for safe driving near large trucks.

One of the most important pieces of advice to take to heart when driving near a large truck is to remain out of its blind spots. Driving in the blind spots of a truck can result in tragedy. If you cannot see the driver in the mirror of the truck, the driver likely cannot see you. Blind spots are on all four sides of the truck. Be sure to stay out of them as much as possible in order to protect yourself on the roads of Wilson.

Do your best not to tailgate large trucks. The same can be said for all types of vehicles on the roads. Tailgating a truck can lead you to crash into the back of it if you don't have enough time to stop. This can crush not only your vehicle, but also you.

When passing a truck, you must leave it enough room to see your vehicle and to maneuver away from you, if necessary. If you pass too closely to a truck, it might clip the back of your vehicle, sending you into a tailspin or off the road.
