Because of their sheer size, large vehicles like semi-trucks and trailers increase the risk of a crash. If you’re driving one, always be mindful of the vehicle’s large height and weight. Maintain your travel lane and follow the speed limit. Also, adjust accordingly to give way for lane changes and other vehicles.
