Off Highway Risks
Attentiveness is required to an added degree when leaving the highway to complete a route, refuel, or find a place to rest. In such a situation, drivers now have to account for cyclists and pedestrians along with motorists. Truckers should use extreme caution when approaching intersections and executing turns. Regular motorists need to be aware that large trucks need extra room to execute turns and should be alert when approaching an intersection where trucks are present.
