Truck accident in Taplow


When you want to drive safely, one of the things that you need to do is to make sure that you are driving safely around trucks. There are a few things that you can do to make sure that you are staying safe even when you’re driving around trucks. Below are some tips that you can use to keep you and your passengers safe.

Know the blind spots of trucks to avoid a truck accident in Taplow

The large trucks have spots that are blind known as “No-zones” which are close their sides, back, and front.  You should keep out of the zones such as these.  When you are in these zones, the driver may not see you.  Keep in mind that when you’re unable to see the mirrors of the truck, they can’t see you either.

Don’t change lanes too quickly

When you are trying to pass a truck, you should see the truck’s front in the rearview mirror of your vehicle before you pull over to their lane. Don’t flash your car’s headlights to tell them that you’re going to be passing them. The driver might get confused.

Don’t cause trucks to suddenly brake

Remember that it’s going to take a lot longer for large trucks to stop completely than it will a car. A truck that weighs much more than a car will need much more room to stop once they engage their brakes. So making them brake suddenly can be disastrous for you and for anyone else who is on the road, causing a truck accident in Taplow.

Steer clear of squeeze plays

A squeeze play is when trucks need to swing wide towards the left side of the road so that they are able to negotiate their right turn safely, particularly when they’re in an urban area.  The driver of a truck can’t see beside or behind them, so it’s a bad idea to go between a curb and a truck.

Keep alert

Make sure that you’re always attentive when you are around big trucks. Be sure that you are paying attention to trucks as well as other vehicles around you, since they may not be as attentive as you are being. This is one of the best ways you can avoid having an accident.

Sometimes it’s a trucks fault that you were injured in a truck accident in Taplow. If this is the case, time is important. Find yourself a good solicitor and make a claim for your injuries.
