FAQ

Why is it important to adhere to stop signs and traffic signals for large vehicles?

Adhering to stop signs and traffic signals is crucial because large vehicles have longer stopping distances and can cause more severe accidents if they collide with other vehicles or pedestrians.

What are the consequences of running a stop sign or red light in a large vehicle?

Running a stop sign or red light increases the likelihood of fatal accidents and serious injuries. It also poses significant legal and financial consequences.

What should I do if my large vehicle stalls on a railroad crossing?

Exit the vehicle immediately and call local law enforcement for assistance. Only attempt to restart the vehicle if you have lookouts to warn of approaching trains.

How can I improve my reaction time at intersections?

Use the "stop-plus-one rule" by counting an additional second after stopping to scan for hazards before proceeding. This helps ensure a thorough check of the intersection.

Are there specific strategies to manage time and avoid rushing?

Plan your routes to allow extra time for delays. If running late, notify your supervisor and explain that you will arrive as soon as safe driving allows.
