Mistakes Cars Make with Trucks

Passenger cars and trucks are not the same. The physical dimensions are different, the reasons for driving are different, and the abilities of the drivers and vehicles to stop or navigate are often different. Some of the issues passenger cars should be aware of when they see a truck are:

  • Trying to steer between two trucks
  • Not accounting for possible spillage
  • Passing a truck and not leaving enough room
  • Passing a truck and not adjusting for air turbulence
  • Following too closely: Trucks can take a lot more time to slow down or come to a stop.
  • Trucks make wide turns
  • Trucks can jackknife
  • Different dimensions. Trucks have different blind spots than cars. Driving too closely or beside a truck, especially a large truck or a truck without windows, can be asking for trouble because the truck driver may not see you.
  • Making a left turn in front of a truck
