Make the Roadway a Safe Place This Holiday Season

  • Larger vehicles need longer following distance to see vehicles behind them, If you can’t see the driver in his or her side mirror, the driver can’t see you, always scan ahead about 15 seconds for traffic issues, work zones, and other danger.
Trucks: I will check my mirrors for others. Cars: I will watch for blind spots.
  • The stopping time and distance for a truck or bus is much greater than that of smaller vehicles. Never suddenly cut in front of a truck as it reduces the truck’s allowable safe stopping distance
Trucks need up to 2 football fields to safely stop.
  • On average, over 700 fatalities occur in work zones each year. When driving through a work zone keep your distance — rear-end crashes are extremely common in work zones. Be sure to maintain extra space between your vehicle and the one in front of you.
Keep Your Distance, Never Cut off a truck or bus.
