VIDEOS - Sharing the Road with Heavy Trucks
Here is a series of four videos from TranBC that are part of the Be Truck Aware initiative. They illustrate dangerous choices made by the drivers of small vehicles when they fail to share the road properly with heavy commercial vehicles.
Be aware of the extra room a truck needs to safely make a right hand turn in a city intersection – and the danger other drivers may put themselves in by not paying attention.
It takes much longer for a large commercial truck to stop than a passenger vehicle. This video shows why you should never cut in front of a truck.
Large commercial trucks have several blind spots, and truck drivers may not be able to clearly see other vehicles around them. Never hang out directly in front of, behind or beside a large truck.
A look at the several scenarios in which B.C. drivers are putting themselves at risk by not driving safely around large commercial trucks.
