Avoid a commercial collision as Interstate 99 welcomes trucks

| Feb 22, 2019 | Personal Injury |

If you live in Hollidaysburg, then you may have known that there was a ban on commercial vehicles on Interstate 99. The ban had previously been implemented throughout Bedford, Centre and Blair Countries. That ban was lifted, and the 45-mph speed limit was also lifted.

As someone who does not enjoy driving alongside commercial vehicles, this might seem frustrating, since it does mean that larger commercial vehicles will again be on the interstate. While that’s the case, it’s still possible to protect yourself even if these vehicles are present.

How do you avoid a collision with a commercial truck?

One important thing to do is to know about the driver’s line of vision. The easiest thing to do is to make sure you can always see at least one of the mirrors on the vehicle. If you can see one of the mirrors, then it’s likely that the driver can see you.

Another good way to avoid a collision is to make sure you don’t ride alongside a commercial vehicle. The length of the vehicle allows it to carry many goods, but it also creates blind spots. Avoid staying in that position for long because a driver may not see you there.

If you do notice a truck pulling into your lane or that may collide with you, use your horn to get the driver’s attention and try to slow down or speed up to get out of the way. By being aware of your surroundings, you may be able to prevent an accident due to the truck driver’s error.
