(PRWEB) July 15, 2013
The Semi Truck Accident Victims Center is now urging the tens of millions of US travelers who will be on our nations freeways, or highways during the summer holiday season, or anytime of year to play it safe when sharing the road with a semi truck, or commercial vehicle, especially at night, during extreme weather events, or in rural areas, and they offer some vital safe driving tips for all drivers, or their passengers. The group says, "We at the Semi Truck Accident Victims Center are one hundred percent focused on protecting the rights of innocent victims, or their family members if the innocent victim has been involved in a catastrophic accident with a semi truck, or commercial vehicle, and believe some simple advice for passenger vehicle drivers will keep them much safer when sharing a Interstate, freeway, or highway with semi trucks, or commercial vehicles."
The Semi Truck Accident Victims Center is urging all drivers, or passengers to keep in mind the four most vital rules for safe driving:
1. Do not drink and drive, and or do not let anyone drive after they have been drinking alcohol.
2. Do not drive when fatigued. The semi Truck Accident Victims Center says, "If you are too tired to drive, stop driving, take a break. Driver fatigue causes thousands of needless traffic accident fatalities each year. Don't become a statistic."
3. Do not talk on a cell phone, or text while driving, especially when driving at high speeds on a freeway, or highway.
4. Maintain your car. The Semi Truck Accident Victims Center says, "Driving a vehicle with bald tires, worn wind shield wiper blades, or mechanical problems not only puts the driver at risk, it also puts all drivers/passengers around them at risk too."
The Semi Truck Accident Victims Center is offering the following safe driving tips for passenger vehicle drivers sharing the highways with semi trucks, or commercial vehicles during the holiday season, and always:
- Never follow too close to a semi truck, or commercial vehicle. The Semi Truck Accident Victims Center says, "If a big rig, or a tractor trailer cannot see you, because you are following the truck too closely-it could be a horrific accident just waiting to happen. Never follow a commercial vehicle, or big rig too closely, especially at freeway speeds."
- Do not pass a commercial vehicle, or semi truck if you cannot see their side mirrors. The group says, "If you can't see a commercial vehicles side mirrors, the truck driver cannot not see you. If you decide to pass a semi truck, what happens to you if the semi truck driver decides to change lanes at the same time-trust us-it ends bad."
- In severe weather driving conditions allow at least five, or six car lengths between you, and the commercial vehicle, or big rig. Never exceed the speed limit during severe weather events.
- Always be a courteous driver, allow commercial vehicles, or big rigs to merge into, or out of traffic at freeway, or highway entrances, and exits.
Do not pass semi trucks, big rigs, or commercial vehicles on their left side at anytime-unless you can see the truck driver's side mirrors. The left side of a semi truck is frequently a blind spot for commercial truck drivers, especially in less than perfect weather.
- These are nationwide common sense rules for passenger vehicle drivers in all states including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.
