The Facts




      
*Drive Safely*


Semi-trucks need at least twice  the time and room to stop as cars.

Law enforcement officers are stopping people who drive aggressively around commercial motor vehicles - whether the person is driving a car or a semi-truck.

Violations being targeted include:

  • Excessive speed  
  • Following too closely
  • Reckless driving    
  • Failing to signal when changing lanes
  • Driving across a gore or median  
  • Operating an unsafe vehicle
  • Driving in an emergency lane            
  • Trucks over six wheels in the left lane
  • Operating a commercial vehicle without a valid commercial license

What you can do to avoid getting a ticket:

Don't cut off tractor trailers - leave plenty of room before changing lanes.

Don't tailgate - Unlike cars, tractor trailers have huge blindspots behind them.   ALso, if truck brakes   suddenly, you have no time to react and no place to go.

Allow trucks plenty of room - Use caution when you or the truck are merging with traffic.
