What are some tips to avoid a truck crash in Columbus?

There's nothing worse than being trapped in a traffic jam, and Columbus is often home to them. With the highway being a major thoroughfare for commercial trucks, it's never a question of if you're going to see trucks on the highway but how many.

The problem with trucks is that they take up a lot of space. With seemingly continuous construction in the area, too, it can be an extremely hazardous situation the moment you enter the highway.

What can you do to stay safer around large commercial vehicles?

Since traffic is bound to be backed up several times a day, it's a good idea to look into alternative routes. If you don't have to take the highway, especially during busy times of the day, then try not to. This won't guarantee that you won't see commercial vehicles on the roads, but the quantity will be much lower.

If you do have to travel on the highway with commercial vehicles, a good tip for avoiding collisions is to slow down and keep a long distance between yourself and the next vehicle. While this doesn't always prevent rear-end crashes with the vehicle behind you, it will mean that there's a lower likelihood that your vehicle will be crushed between two large trucks. It also gives you more space to maneuver if there is a problem up ahead of you.

Overall, it's possible to avoid truck accidents if you are careful about when you're on the highway and keep your distance. If the worst does happen, remember that those who cause crashes are able to be held liable.
