If it's dangerous for truckers, it's probably dangerous for you

We discuss the dangers of trucking quite often in our blog because it continues to be an important topic for all of Illinois. In the course of your day, you will probably find yourself driving near these massive vehicles one or more times.

Tips truck drivers can use to avoid accidents

With such large, heavy vehicles under their control, it's imperative that truck drivers take the proper steps to protect those around them. An accident that doesn't even hurt a truck driver could very easily kill or injure someone in a vastly smaller passenger vehicle.

How do I drive safely near large trucks?

Driving is an inherently dangerous activity, even if you practice all recommended safety measures to prevent accidents.

Trucking logs are required by drivers to complete for various reasons.
