Check Your Truck Awareness
Be Truck Aware is a combined campaign of education and enforcement aimed at reducing car-truck crashes.
Passenger vehicle drivers are urged to:
Leave space: Large trucks need extra room to stop and to turn. Don’t take away their turning or braking room.
Don’t merge too soon: When passing a truck, make sure you can see both its headlights in your rear-view mirror before merging back into the lane. If you merge too soon, the truck driver may not see you or be able to stop in time to avoid a crash.
Be visible around trucks: Either slow down or move well ahead of large trucks to stay out of the truck drivers blind spots.
Anticipate wide turns: Watch for trucks making wide swings to turn right. Never drive ahead in the right lane beside a turning truck.
