- The stopping time and distance for a truck or bus is much greater than that of smaller vehicles.
- Stopping distance increases with a heavy load or in road conditions such as snow, ice or rain.
- A fully loaded truck traveling in good road conditions at highway speeds needs a distance of nearly two football fields to stop.
- Never suddenly cut in front of a truck as it reduces the truck's allowable safe stopping distance.
