Why You Should Never Pass a Truck Before Your Thruway Exit

by William Mattar | May 28th, 2015

                Big truck accidents are increasingly common, and can cause serious injuries and damage. As truck drivers need to be aware of traffic, other vehicles need to be just as aware of trucks, especially on entrance and exit ramps. There are ways to keep you safe and possibly lower the risk of being injured in a truck accident.

Stopped vehicles on thruway exits are very common and dangerous. They can cause traffic backups and unsafe conditions when people are not paying attention. Visibility can be low when maneuvering across multiple thruway lanes, especially with other large trucks blocking your view to exit.   Drivers may not see the stopped vehicle until it is too late. This is why you should never maneuver around large trucks abruptly before your exit.

If you have been involved in a truck accident, there are important steps you must follow. For more information and what to do if you are involved in a truck accident, ask our Buffalo Truck Accident lawyers.
