Truckers don’t always drive safely in the rain

As a passenger vehicle driver, you know that you'll be sharing the road with truckers on a regular basis. While there is nothing wrong with this, you could find yourself in a bad spot should you be involved in an accident.

When the rain begins to fall, your driving habits need to change. The same holds true for every other driver.

Unfortunately, you can only control what you do. For this reason, you need to keep a close watch on all other drivers while also doing these things:

-- Don't use cruise control. Doing so on a slick surface can increase the chance of losing control of your vehicle.

-- Leave plenty of room between your vehicle and others. It may take longer to stop, so you don't want to drive too close to others.

-- Slow down. This is the best thing you can do, as it greatly reduces the risk of losing control.

If you realize that somebody around you, such as a trucker, is driving in a reckless manner in a rainstorm, don't hesitate to keep your distance. You don't want to be in close proximity to this person, as he or she has an increased risk of causing an accident.

As unfortunate as it may be, truckers don't always drive safely in the rain. Instead, they continue to speed and take chances because they want to reach their destination as quickly as possible.

If you're injured in an accident, as the result of a negligent trucker in Indiana, seek medical attention and then learn more about your legal rights.
