FHP has these tips for car drivers:  Protect yourself and your passengers by learning how to share the road.

  • Stay out of the No Zone: Watch for the huge blind spots (No Zones) around large trucks.
  • Pass trucks with caution: Pass on the left side for maximum visibility and maintain a constant speed.
  • Don’t cut trucks off. Large trucks simply can’t stop as quickly as cars.
  • Practice patience. Try to be predictable. Avoid making erratic moves if a truck isn’t going as fast as you’d like.For more information about TACT and FHP’s Commercial Motor Vehicle Enforcement, visit: http://www.flhsmv.gov/fhp/
