Safe Driving Tips: Sharing The Road With The Big Rigs

There’s nothing fun about driving next to an 18-wheeler. They’re big and they have a frightening tendency to drift in and out of your lane more often than you’d like. But sharing the road with a big rig need not be a nightmare — there are things you can do to make it easier on yourself and your friendly neighborhood truck driver.

Key Takeaways:

  • If there’s one thing that we hear a lot about when it comes to hitting the highway, it’s the worries that people have when driving with the big rigs.
  • The biggest threat on the road to the big trucks are us little guys. That’s right; other drivers in four wheel cars.
  • The problem isn’t as much with the drivers as it is with the truck itself. Big trucks do not have the same capabilities as a car.
