Trucks can be dangerous to drive around due to their size and large blind spots. Never try to cut off or slip past them, and avoid driving too close as truck drivers may not be able to see you. Semi truck drivers often spend long hours on the road and can be exhausted, increasing the risk for traffic accidents. Always stay alert and avoid distractions at all times behind the wheel.
