Sharing the Road
Saturday, November 26, 2016
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA) aims to prevent crashes, injuries and fatalities involving large trucks and buses. They recently interviewed seasoned truck drivers for their perspective on how we can all keep our roads safe. You can check out the video or read our highlights below:
· The Right Side Blind Spot is the worst place to be. A truck’s blind spot can extend three lanes over and the length of the trailer. If you can’t see the truck driver’s face in his mirror, he can’t see you.
· The Left Side Blind Spot is much smaller. It’s best to pass on the left side of a truck, but you still don’t want to linger there. The Left Side Blind Spot is just behind the cab of the truck.
· Allow plenty of space behind and in front of a truck. If you follow too closely, you could rear end a driver or hit an object in the road you couldn’t see in time. If you cut a truck off, the driver may not be able to avoid hitting you. It’s best to stay 20 car lengths behind a truck and 10 car lengths ahead.
You can count on us to practice safe driving for the sake of our drivers as well as everyone else we Share the Road with, and we appreciate you doing the same.
