Weather conditions can affect driving safety in a number of ways. For most people, however, staying home in bad weather is not a realistic option. Understanding weather-related dangers and how to minimize or avoid them can go a long way towards helping you stay safe on the road.
If you find yourself changing lanes, slowing down or making similar efforts to keep from having to drive near semi-trucks, you are not alone. Given the sheer size of such vehicles, they are prone to obstructing your vision, and this is one of many reasons motorists often try and avoid them on the roadway altogether.
