Truck Zone Safety

Driving a large truck can be a tough – and dangerous – job. Weighing up to 80,000 pounds compared to the average American car’s 3,000¹, the size of a tractor-trailer increases brake distance, can block visibility for other drivers and presents unique challenges for everyone sharing the road.

Staying safe on the road is not the truck driver’s responsibility alone. In fact, in 78% of car-truck accidents, the car was at fault.² Drivers should learn to avoid the truck zone and drive safely around large trucks. Travelers specialist Renee Lawson shows you how in this video.
