Driver Safety & Trucking Accidents in NE Pennsylvania

Scranton Truck Accident Attorney

While it is important to be aware that a negligent truck driver can cause a trucking accident to occur, it is also important to note that other drivers can take action to help avoid an accident in the first place. Following are some basic driver safety tips to help avoid becoming involved in a serious truck accident:

  • Be alert when you are driving in the vicinity of a truck. They may swerve unexpectedly due to the wind or poor road conditions.
  • Do not drive alongside a truck for any extended period of time.
  • Do not stop suddenly or change lanes directly in front of a large truck, as these vehicles take approximately 40% longer to stop than a smaller vehicle.
  • Be sure that you do not drive in the truck driver’s blind spots.
  • Try to maintain a consistent speed if you are driving in front of or behind a truck.
  • If you spot a truck driver who is swerving, speeding or otherwise driving recklessly, contact law enforcement and report this immediately.
