A crashed car

I personally saw many scary situations with huge trucks. PEMCO updated their blog about this. Normal car drivers do not think how trucks drive, so please read carefully, specially first and second ones. They cannot see you and they cannot stop immediately.

Don’t linger near a truck. If you can’t see the driver’s face in the side mirrors, the driver can’t see you.

Pass trucks quickly on the left side only, and don’t return to the lane until you can see both of the truck’s headlights in your rearview mirror (then don’t slow down).

Be aware of approaching weigh stations and give trucks plenty of room to make their way to the right lane.

Don’t cut in front of a truck to beat it to an exit. A loaded truck can take the length of a football field to stop.

Allow for a truck’s wide turns. To accommodate its trailer’s swing, a truck turning left often must first pull to the right. The opposite is true for trucks turning right. Don’t roll up alongside, assuming the truck has pulled over to let you pass.
