Have you ever been driving down the road and looked into your rear view mirror only to see the front of a huge truck almost right on top of you? That truck is following you too closely – maybe he’s trying to intimidate you into switching lanes in order to speed on past you – and its a huge cause of trucking accidents.

Huge tractor trailer trucks are longer and heavier than normal automobiles. Because of its weight and length, a tractor-trailer truck can’t stop quickly to avoid a situation on the road. That’s why a tractor-trailer driver must keep the proper amount of space between the truck and other vehicles.

Keeping a proper amount of space is a very important safety topic that every truck driver knows about. In fact, most all truck drivers are professionally trained and educated on keeping a proper amount of space between the truck and other vehicles. Always remember that truck drivers are professional drivers. They get paid to drive. Unlike truck drivers, everyday normal drivers do not know as much about driving, driving trucks, stopping distances, and space requirements.

So a truck driver knows about keeping proper amounts of space between the truck other vehicles on the road and must keep the proper amount of space to avoid trucking accidents.

Keeping space is also very important considering the large amounts of traffic on the roads and Interstates in South Carolina, including Interstate 85. Because of heavy traffic congestion, tractor-trailer truck driver must keep a proper amount of space between the truck and other vehicles to avoid a trucking accident.
