Wide Turns

  • Trucks and buses can't make sharp turns or maneuver as easily as cars.
  • Be extra careful where trucks or buses are dealing with tight spaces such as in work zones, truck stops, parking lots and service stations.
  • Pay close attention when trucks are turning right so you don’t get caught in the “right turn squeeze.” A large truck cannot easily turn right from the right lane and may initially move left to create enough turning space.
