Maneuverability

Trucks-Comedy-ClassTrucks are not as maneuverable as cars and small trucks. Many large tractor-trailers have warning stickers and flashing yellow arrows to warn drivers about lingering alongside a truck when passing. For all turning vehicles, the rear wheels follow a shorter path than the front wheels. Many times a truck driver will need to swing to the left prior to making a right turn. Always pass a large truck on the left side. When you have passed the truck, move well ahead of it and out of the No-Zone.
