A trucker and Tik Tok user recently posted a video offering some little-discussed advice for new drivers – how to avoid truck stop pranks. 

“Here’s some tips on how not to get f***ed with at a truck stop,” the video begins. 

From there on, @vincy31 explains how to avoid spilling fuel everywhere, getting your trailer pin pulled, and the extra importance of a pre-trip inspection. 

“Great information. Lots of drivers need to hear this!” praised one viewer. 

“Yup. Always ‘stretch’ your trailer,” added another. 

“Yeah bro, most new drivers don’t know about this, then end up in a problem,” Vincy 31 agreed. 

Check out the quick tips below.
