Drive Defensively Around Semi-Trucks

I was driving on I-5 near the Iowa exit in Bellingham, Washington the other day when the back of a semi-truck in front of me began to sway.  I immediately applied my brakes, hoping that the truck was not about to jack knife across the freeway.  It didn’t but the car in front of it was hit, pushing it to the middle concrete divider.  Bellingham Personal Injury Attorney Bill Coats warns drivers to be defensive when operating around semi-trucks.  Don’t just pull in front of one without leaving enough room to prevent what happened here.  Also, don’t tailgate a truck because if it does jack knife, you are in trouble.  If you have been in an accident involving a semi-truck, CLICK HERE to contact Personal Injury Attorney Bill Coats to find out what the value of your claim is worth.
