Tip when a car is driving in front of a truck

Today’s tip for when driving in front of a truck. Trucks that are loaded, meaning they have merchandise in their trailers weigh anywhere from 50,000 to 80,000 lbs on the road. That means they can’t stop easily. Try and avoid cutting a truck off on the road, a truck must have about 7 seconds of distance to be able to stop safely and avoid an accident. If you are a car and must cut in front of a truck on an off ramp step on your gas. Don’t cut off the truck and take your sweet time, you are causing a probible accident. Remember a truck is bigger than a car and can kill you instantly. Drive safely!!
