Trucks, buses, and other large vehicles are harder to maneuver, have more blind spots, and take a longer time to decelerate. Drivers need to be extra vigilant and observe safety at all times. Avoid distractions, know your blind spots, and keep a safe braking distance. Furthermore, buckle up for safety, always observe the speed limit, and be aware of dangerous tailgaters. Equally important, keep your equipment properly maintained to reduce the chance of breakdowns.
