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:
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.
