To avoid accidents involving semi trucks, passenger and other vehicles should give trucks the room they need to safely negotiate the highways. Maintaining a good distance prevents passenger vehicles from being struck by flying debris, being run into by out-of-control trucks, or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time when a truck driver is forced to to make a sudden maneuver. Always stay alert and avoid distractions behind the wheel.
