Safely Sharing the Roads With Trucks - Trucks Make Wide Turns
Don't crowd an intersection
Many intersections are marked with stop lines, indicating where a driver must come to a complete stop. Crowding an intersection leaves your vehicle exposed to vehicles that are attempting to turn.
Watch for indicator
Watch the truck's turning signal to see what the driver intends to do.
Sneaking alongside can be fatal
Don't try to sneak to the side and squeeze around trucks - it may be the last mistake you'll ever make.
Stop wait and watch
Wait for the truck to make its turn first as the truck's turn signal may not be working.
Stay back at least a car length when stopping behind a truck.
