Truck Accidents

Many Kentucky motorists may find themselves sharing the road with large trucks. To this end, knowing the proper steps when driving around trucks is crucial to make safety a top priority. While you can’t always prevent an accident from happening, you can reduce the chances of a serious injury from occurring.

That’s why Nationwide recommends the following tips to drivers, including tips for passing large trucks. In this case, you should maintain a consistent speed while also making sure not to exceed the speed limit in the process. Always pass on the left side of a truck, and check to make sure you have ample room to properly perform the procedure.

Additionally, you should make every effort to avoid those driving habits that are deemed unsafe. For instance, distracted driving can lead to many serious wrecks and even loss life. Distracted driving includes things like texting, talking, eating or even adjusting the volume on the radio when behind the wheel. Obeying traffic laws is also highly important, especially if you’re traveling in a construction zone.

Lastly, there are other maneuvers that can be useful for driving safely around trucks. Trucks typically have to make wide turns, so it’s best to give them enough room to maneuver. Also, it’s recommended that you slow down if a truck is attempting to pass you. This will ensure that the truck has enough room to make the pass, while reducing your risk of being involved in a crash. Steering clear of a truck’s blind spots is another good tip, and this includes in the front and back of the vehicle, as well as areas on the side.
