Truck Driver Safety

Ever think about truck driver safety issues? As a commercial truck driver, are you open to some simple safe driving tips that could save your life?


As a commercial truck driver, you may have noticed some differences between driving a personal vehicle and a commercial truck. If you are new to truck driving, truck driver safety can save your life. Because we love, honor and respect our truck drivers, perhaps the following would be some useful tips that just might prevent an accident. Your loved ones miss you while you’re gone. Let’s see if these ideas can keep you coming home to them at the end of your long haul.


  1. A commercial truck is slow to accelerate and slow to stop. Compare these driving differences with driving a personal sedan or even a pick-up truck. Driving a small car or a pick-up truck, you can quickly accelerate and stop much faster than you can in a commercial truck. Keeping these simple ideas in mind, while driving your heavy truck, maintain an assured, clear distance while in traffic. Applying just this one truck driver safety tip while on the highways may be paramount to your safety and the safety of everyone around you.

  2. While driving your “big rig,” remember that the majority of the population has no personal experience or training driving a commercial truck. People who don’t understand the limitations of your truck can challenge your truck driver safety. You may feel frustrated while on the highways when a driver acts irresponsibly and affects your safety. Br-e-a-t-h-e and keep your cool. Let the vehicle into the flow of traffic and maintain your assured, clear distance. The old adage remains true. You can be right or you can be happy. In other words, you may be right to feel frustrated about irresponsible driving behavior from others. But if you lose your cool and lash out, you may not be happy being right; you may be dead instead. We encourage you to always practice safe driving in your truck.
