Three out of 4 fatal accidents involving a truck were caused by a vehicle other than the truck. Here are tips to help car drivers share the road with big rigs.
* Never pass on the right.
* Respect a truck's blind spots. If you can't see the driver in his side mirror, he can't see you.
* Exit behind trucks, don't speed up to exit in front.
* Don't tailgate.
* Large trucks may be moving faster than they appear.
* Remember that trucks take more time to accelerate, brake, and change lanes.
