Last updated 7 years ago

If you’ve ever found yourself cruising directly in front of or to the right of a big rig, you’ve already escaped a dangerous situation on the road. Learning to pass trucks safely is important, as big rig trucks are involved in 25% of highway injury accidents. In this video for Expert Village, traffic reporter David Rizzo discusses some important tips for highway safety.
