Try not to drive alongside a truck. This may mean that you are in a truck driver's blind spot. If you must drive alongside a truck, avoid driving along the front end of the truck's right side and the middle section of the vehicle's left side. If possible, pass by the truck and get out of its possible blind spots.
Avoid cutting in front of trucks.
If you attempt to cut in front of a truck, you are putting yourself and the truck driver in serious danger. Before getting in front of a truck, make sure that there is enough room to do so. This will lessen your chances of a rear end collision.
Allow trucker's to change lanes and merge.
If you see that a truck driver is attempting to merge into a lane or change lanes, make sure that there is enough room for him to do so. Make it easier by flashing your lights to show that you are willing to allow the truck to change lanes.
Give truck driver's plenty of room to stop.
Since trucks are often much heavier than other automobiles, it takes much longer for a truck to come to a complete stop. Making sure to leave plenty of room between you and the truck can decrease your chances of being involved in a truck/car accident.
Give the truck driver enough time to back up.
If you see a truck attempting to back up, make sure to be patient and give the driver the time that is needed. It can be extremely difficult to back up a truck without causing an accident. In order to keep everyone safe on the road, be patient and wait for the truck to finish.
