Due to trucks’ significant size and power, drivers cannot stop quickly or maneuver easily like other vehicles, so they need additional time to react and adjust their speed.
Therefore, always be careful when passing a large truck, and make sure to give clear signals.
Be sure to follow all traffic laws as well. Most importantly, stay focused on the road.
No one likes to suffer injuries due to other drivers’ negligence, more so to risk contact with hazardous chemicals a large commercial vehicle may be carrying.
You may also use a rideshare app if you see yourself unfit to drive in the moment.
