Turn off your bright lights at night when passing a big truck . The magnification in a trucks side mirrors is very blinding and distracting. It’s amazing how many cars and big trucks i see every night running with bright lights on .

Take your time and be patient. Flatbed drivers throw the extra securement. Slow down and read the signs get out and look when backing. Patients and common sense will get you a long way. Be safe and God bless!

If you can’t respect my life at least respect your own…DON’T BRAKE CHECK A TRUCK!

Anticipate what other drivers are going to do before they do it. You always have to be aware of what’s driving around you at all times. Keep looking at least a quarter mile ahead not just at the taillights in front of you.

When getting unloaded on the side of the road never turn your back on traffic, and always wear a safety vest.
