Most people put on their flashers, or hazard lights, at 45 mph on the interstate, but this may not be legal.

Each state and area has its own laws in regards to this.

In states where’s it’s legal to do so, PLEASE turn on your four-way flashers when traveling slowly on any road.  Stay in the far right lane when traveling up a grade and slowing down. Around 45 mph, on the interstate, I make sure my flashers are on and I get in the far right lane, granny lane.

As other vehicles come up behind you, they can not judge your rate of speed.

Then they get right up underneath your rear end before they can, or will, react.  It is dangerous for both cars and big trucks.

It is really as simple as pushing a button or flipping the toggle switch; one second and you could save someone.

According to Esurance and AAA, the following states prohibit the use of hazard lights while driving:

Florida

Hawaii

Illinois

Kansas

Massachusetts

Trucking is not just a profession,  it’s a way of life.

Be safe out there.
