Avoiding Rear End Collisions - Large Vehicles

Description: Rear end collisions can be very serious since the vehicle that is struck from behind is usually stopped or moving very slowly while the other vehicle is in motion.The potential for catastrophe is amplified when the vehicle in motion is a large truck and the vehicle that is struck is a smaller vehicle such as an automobile. Although statistics indicate that the majority of collisions involving trucks and automobiles are caused by the driver of the automobile, we want to focus on ways to avoid those accidents regardless of who is at fault. In this lesson we will focus on several common causes and scenarios concerning rear end collisions. There are also actual collisions cited as examples for most situations.
