When driving near trucks, which of the following mistakes should you avoid?


1) After passing a truck or bus, do not cut in front too soon. Truck and bus drivers need nearly twice the time and room to stop as cars do. 2) Trucks and buses have blind spots on both sides. If the truck changes lanes, you could be in trouble. The blind spot on the right side of a tractor-trailer runs the length of the trailer and extends out three lanes. 3) Never cross behind a truck that is backing up. Hundreds of motorists are killed or injured each year by ignoring trucks that are backing up.
