Truck Accident Lawer
Idaho Semi-Truck Accident Lawyer
Seeing a large, fully loaded semi-truck on an Idaho road is not uncommon. Average semis can weight up to 40 tons (80,000 pounds), and these trucks can be as long as 80 feet. Sharing the road with these behemoths can be a challenge for many drivers. With the steady stream of semis on the road, the occasional run-in with a semi-truck is inevitable. The collisions resulting from these accidents can prove deadly for those involved.

Tips to Avoid a Semi-Truck Accident
Sharing the road with a semi-truck can be a challenge, but it is something that every driver will need to know how to do. While there isn’t a surefire guarantee that will prevent every semi-truck accident, there are some necessary tactics you can incorporate into your driving to stay safer on the road. Some of these things include:
- Never cut off a semi
- Avoid a semi’s blind spots (they are far more substantial than a regular car’s)
- Watch for unusually wide turns (never try to pass a semi on the right for this reason)
- Never tailgate a semi
- Remember, it takes a semi a much longer time to stop
