For people on the road in Roanoke City, it is wise to keep a close eye on large trucks and be cautious when maneuvering one's vehicle in their vicinity. This is in part due to the sheer size of these vehicles and that their drivers are often on the road for extended periods. In addition, some drivers might flout the laws as to how long they are allowed to be out on the road without a sufficient break. Another issue, that is often overlooked when there is a truck accident, is the possibility that it occurred due to a blind spot.
In Virginia and across the entire nation, trucks are always on the road making deliveries and going back and forth across the country. Large and intimidating, these vehicles are so prominent because of their sheer size and the fact that the only thing preventing a truck accident with significant damage to life and limb is the driver and the way the truck was put together.
