I am cruising down the highway and suddenly my sun is gone. A massive hauling truck is next to me and we all know what they say about truck drivers and I am scared, it is three times bigger than my car.
Give truck drivers enough space
Maintain a safe following distance. You are invisible to the truck driver if you directly behind him or directly in front of him.
Do not drive in a truck driver’s blind spot as trucks has bigger blind spots than passenger vehicles
Only pass the truck when you have enough space and time to do so and then only pass on the left side maintain a constant speed
If you need to turn, do not cross in front of a truck and brake, remember trucks takes three times longer as it needs more distance than your car to brake and do not turn in front of a truck if you need to stop or slow down
When driving near a truck do not turn on bright headlights
As a truck is passing you, reduce your speed to make it easier for the driver to pass you
If you stop behind a truck on an incline leave a safe distance in between as truck may drift backwards as it start accelerating
Never drive between two or more trucks as they can turn in front of you and that force into another vehicle
Road rage is problem, so remember that if you get irritated by a truck driver that he maybe had a long haul and his cargo carrier is bigger that your passenger car
