Commercial trucks have hard time turning due to their large size and length. This makes maneuvering difficult while trying to make a turn. As a result, this will cause the truck driver to jump a curb or turn wide while trying to steer in a new direction. If the truck driver jumps the curb he could be placing anyone on the side one or near the roadway in danger. Because it can be so difficult to turn these large trucks, truck drivers are required to consider the public’s safety while trying to conduct a turn. If the driver makes a poor choice the result could lead to an accident occurring.
