Safely driving near large trucks in Gainesville

The roads of Gainesville can be stressful during the morning and afternoon rush hours. They can be stressful in the middle of the day and at night. Driving is not always a fun task to complete, especially when you need to operate your vehicle around large trucks. They dominate the traffic on the road because of their size and speed. Here are some important safety tips for your next trip.

Ever find it scary to pass a large truck on the roads of Gainesville? It is an unnerving task to perform. The next time you need to pass a truck, do so with care. Leave yourself plenty of room when moving in front of the truck in its lane. If you move back into the lane too close to the truck it could clip the rear of your vehicle, sending you off the road.

Do your best to remain out of the blind spots of large trucks no matter how large your vehicle is or how experienced you are as a driver. Operating your vehicle in a truck's blind spot is a recipe for disaster. The most common blind spots are on the left and right sides of the truck. Remember this tip: If you aren't able to see the driver of the truck in the truck's mirror, he or she cannot see you.

The next time you approach an intersection and have to stop, do not get too close to the white line. If you sit on top of it or stop past it, a truck making a right turn won't have enough room. Always leave room for large trucks when you are on the road.
