Driving: Heavy Trucks: Judging Speed and Distance

Commercial truck drivers have to drive under many different road conditions. This online training video shows heavy truck drivers how to adjust their speed while driving on slippery roads, curves, hills and in other environments.

The section on judging speed illustrates how to safely take a curve by slowing down before entering the curve. Drivers should never brake at a curve because the wheels could lock and cause a skid. Viewers learn that it’s safest to go with the flow of traffic rather than trying to go faster since passing traffic increases the risk of a crash. This section also explains how to safely go down long, steep hills by shifting into a low gear and going slowly.

Reduce the risk of accidents by watching this training video to learn how to adjust your driving speed.
