How to avoid accidents while driving commercial vehicles.
If you drive a vehicle for work, you may be concerned about the potential of being involved n an accident while on the job. While some accidents are unavoidable, there are a few things you can do while driving a commercial vehicle that will lower your chances of getting into an accident. Learn to recognize certain driving situations that can be dangerous, such as merging onto and off of expressways. Assume that other drivers will make mistakes in their driving so you can anticipate what to do. It’s also important to feel very comfortable with the vehicle you’re driving so that you can anticipate how it will handle in traffic and other situations.
Remember not to text or talk on the phone while you’re behind the wheel, as this can distract you from things going on in traffic (and in many municipalities, is illegal). Always remain alert when you’re using a commercial vehicle, and give yourself extra time and space to stop suddenly. Make sure the company regularly maintains their vehicles, as well, to avoid having to deal with accidents caused by faulty mechanics.
