Most South Carolina drivers know that the enormous size difference between passenger vehicles and large trucks can make any type of collision deadly. But many drivers don’t realize how much space truck drivers actually need to come to a full stop. Understanding the importance of giving a truck adequate braking distance can go a long way toward preventing serious crashes.
Both truck drivers and other motorists have a duty to respect each other’s stopping distances. If they fail to do so and cause an accident, they can be held liable for any injuries and damages they cause.
