One of the leading causes of accidents between cars and trucks is the lack of safe distance kept between the two. Thus, always maintain a safe distance when driving. Do not drive aggressively or attempt unsafe maneuvers around trucks as this can cause accidents that are unavoidable by truck drivers. Pay attention to your surroundings and practice defensive driving.
