Large commercial trucks are prevalent on the highways and streets all across the U.S. While their drivers are professionally trained, their sheer size and weight makes them difficult to stop and maneuver when faced with an obstacle. Learning to respect their space and understanding their limitations can help motorists avoid being involved in an accident with one of these large vehicles.
