Because of their sheer size, large vehicles, like big rigs and trailers, increase the risk of a crash. So, if you are driving one, always be mindful of your vehicle’s large height and weight. Maintain your travel lane and follow the speed limit. Be sure to keep a safe following distance from the car in front of you. Also, adjust your driving accordingly to make way for lane changes and other vehicles.
