Philadelphia, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/01/2017 -- Rizio, Hamilton & Kane, P.C., a group of Philadelphia accident lawyers, is offering drivers tips on avoiding truck accidents.
"Philadelphia-area highways are currently undergoing major construction projects. With tightened lanes and high congestion, the potential for semi truck collisions is relatively high," said Alexandra Kane, a partner with Rizio, Hamilton & Kane, P.C.
While semi trucks are an integral element in driving the American economy, their inclusion on the nation's highways can lead to deadly collisions, considering their immense power over other vehicles. These are the tips that Rizio, Hamilton & Kane, P.C. laid out to help drivers stay safe among semi trucks:
- Watch out to make sure they are not in blind spots. Semi trucks have much larger blind spots than smaller vehicles. Motorists who cannot see a truck's mirrors are most likely in its blind spot, and should move out of that area as quickly as possible.
- Do not operate a vehicle too closely in front of a semi truck, as they require more time than smaller vehicles to brake to a complete stop.
- Recognize that trucks take wider turns than other vehicles; their tails swing out farther than those of passenger vehicles. Keep that in mind when driving near a turning semi truck.
"Most of all, beyond our tips, the best thing drivers can do is to always exhibit predictability and follow traffic laws," said Kane.
