Vision decision

Driving safely around trucks: Vision Decision

Turning Right:

  • Because of their size, large vehicles are not always able to turn from within their own lane.
  • Always watch for turn signals indicating that a large vehicle may be making a right turn.

Turning Left:

  • When approaching an intersection, be sure to stop behind the white line.
  • Large vehicles need ample room when turning left so they can pass safely in front of your vehicle.
