A truck doesn’t drive like a car. Trucks weigh more, are taller and have much larger blind spots. No matter what, a truck will take longer to stop and won’t ever maneuver as quickly as a car. Considering nearly one of every four vehicles on Utah’s highways are trucks, that’s something that can’t be ignored.
As a driver, it’s important to learn how to interact safely with large trucks. By incorporating a few simple behaviors, you can become “Truck Smart” and help make Utah’s roads safer for everyone.
