Steer Clear Of Big Rigs

We all know that feeling: the uncomfortable knot in our stomach we get when we look in the rear-view mirror and see a large tractor-trailer bearing down on us. Even though most trucks are driven safely, the fact is that no matter how big the car you drive, these big rigs are much bigger and will cause more damage in any accident. Unfortunately, the number of accidents involving tractor-trailers and automobiles is on the rise, increasing the danger to automobile drivers. The following are some helpful safety tips.

* Remember that a large truck has a large blind spot. If you are driving in the truck's blind spot, the truck driver cannot see you. Either stay behind the truck or else pass it quickly.

* Do not follow a big rig too closely. Large trucks block your view of hazards further down the highway, and a tired trucker might not brake soon enough to give you the warning you need to avoid a collision.

* If in doubt, give the truck a wide berth. A car almost always loses in a collision with a large truck. The best way to avoid such accidents is to avoid the trucks.
