Tips for driving safely around semi-trucks

Many commercial vehicle accidents in California are caused by other drivers. Because of this, it is important for drivers to understand how they should react to and drive around semi-trucks and other large vehicles, such as buses. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration notes that larger vehicles have limitations that cars and passenger trucks do not have. These include limits on turning radiuses, requiring more time to stop and large blind spots.

What causes large truck accidents?

As a California motorist, you may be familiar with navigating the busy roadways alongside massive tractor trailers on a daily basis. These big rigs are necessary for the economy, as they help distribute goods throughout the state and across the country. These giant vehicles, however, are extremely dangerous and put the lives of many people at risk. In 2014 alone, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 281 people were killed in accidents involving big rigs.  It is important to understand what causes large truck accidents so that you can avoid becoming the victim of a catastrophic tractor trailer collision.
