FMCSA Our Roads, Our Safety Campaign Infographics

Blind Spots

Large trucks and buses have huge blind spots. Keep a safe distance from potential blind spots and assume the driver can’t see you!

Long Stops

Did you know a truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds? That’s 20 to 30 times the weight of a regular vehicle. Because of their weight, it takes trucks an extra long distance to stop. Be smart and don’t cut off your bigger neighbors on the road!

Work Zones

31% of fatal crashes in work zones involved at least one large vehicle. Stay alert, be aware of your surroundings, and obey all work zone signs and signals.

Wide Turns

Commercial vehicles require extra room to turn. If a truck or bus has its turn signal on, never try to squeeze by or get between the vehicle and the curb.
