There are some precautions we can follow to prevent truck accidents.
Always be careful when passing a commercial truck. Large trucks cannot stop as quickly or maneuver as easily as other vehicles, so truck drivers need additional time to react and adjust their speed. It is important to provide clear signals so the truck driver can anticipate your actions. Use your signal sooner than you normally would for other motorists so that the truck driver has adequate time to adjust his or her own driving.
