Sharing The Road With Trucks

Research says that many numbers of accidents are happening because of the lack of sharing the road with large vehicles. Following are some rules for driving safely among trucks, tractor-trailers, and buses:
Blind Spots - Do not follow closely behind a truck or a bus. When driving near a large vehicle, be aware of the driver's blind spots on the right, left, front, and behind.
Tailgating - If you cannot see a truck's rearview mirrors, you are tailgating. By following too closely, you are losing the safety cushion you need if the vehicle in front of you stops short.
Cutting in Front - Do not follow closely behind a truck or a bus. When driving near a large vehicle, be aware of the driver's blind spots on the right, left, front, and behind.
Passing on the Left - Overtaking a tractor-trailer or a bus is much difficult when compared to that of the large vehicle. Watch for possible right-hand turns, and stay safely behind until you know what the driver is going to do.
