Trucks and buses are much heavier than most other vehicles and as a result, they take longer to slow down and stop. This means sutting in front of a truck or bus, which causes them to brake suddenly or minimizes the distance between them and the vehicle ahead, can be ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴏᴜs. If you take up that space by cutting in front of them, this can be very ʀɪsᴋy – especially if you can’t see what’s ahead. Heavy vehicle drivers generally leave a large space in front of their vehicles so they have the distance they need to comfortably stop suddenly and you should too. By providing buses, trucks, and heavy vehicles with the distance they need to come to a safe stop, you also have more time to stop safety.
Larger vehicles often have multiple large blind spots. If you happen to be in a blind spot, the driver of the heavy vehicle probably won’t be able to see you, so it’s safety not to travel in a blind spot. For trucks, especially trucks with multiple trailers, it’s important to be aware of where these blind spots are located. To clean corners and other obstacles, heavy and large cehicles generally need more space to ᴍᴀɴoeuver than smaller vehicles. This can often involve moving into an adjacent lane.
Driving behind a heavy vehicle obstructs your view of the lane ahead, so even if you are traveling a safe distance behind, to some degree you’re driving blind in relation to any oncoming obstacles. This means the more distance you leave behind a heavy vehicle, the better your view of the road ahead. Another reason to keep your distance and not follow too ᴄʟᴏsᴇly when driving behind a truck is debris some trucks shed dirt, stones, and other hazards as they move along the road. Dust can impede your vision and ability to see clearly, and even a small stone can chip or crack a windscreen.
Driving can be stressful, especially if your’re trekking through heavy traffic. For drivers of buses and trucks, along with the usual stress of heavy traffic we all experience, there is also often the extra hassle of cars not letting them merge or change lanes in ғᴇᴀʀ of the heavy vehicle slowing their path.
