CVSA International Roadcheck set for June 4-6

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance will conduct its annual International Roadcheck from June 4 to 6.

According to data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the years 2015 to 2017 experienced an annual increase in the percentage of fatal crashes involving one or more large trucks. The same period saw more and more large truck occupants dying in crashes. Fatal large truck and/or bus crashes have gone up from 2016 to 2017 as well. Truckers in Illinois should know that work zones are especially high-risk areas.

Sharing the road with commercial vehicles

While drivers in Illinois and elsewhere may be fearful of sharing the road with large trucks, it is possible to do so safely. It is important that drivers of passenger cars and trucks have a healthy dose or respect for the bigger and heavier commercial trucks. This means giving them ample room to merge onto highways and giving them space while driving. When in the presence of a commercial truck, drivers should be sure to avoid its blind spots.
