When crossing the USA, remember that each state has its own traffic laws and regulations.
The speed limit in most states for cars is now 65 miles per
hour except where signs indicate slower speeds. Many drivers
travel about 10 or 15 mph above the legal limit , however most travel
only 5 mph over the legal limit and the police usually will not stop
them. Some areas have reduced speed limits for trucks and
commercial vehicles, which gives motorist less time to respond when
approaching a truck so be careful.
Are you careless with your family? Most vehicles risk there
lives everyday cutting off a big rig.
Most drivers will cut in front of a big rig with only about 100ft
Here are the facts on Big Rigs.
PERCEPTION DISTANCE: Length a rig travels from the time a driver see
a hazard and the brain recognizes it is one second, or
at 60 mph about 88 feet.
REACTION DISTANCE: :Length a rig travels in the time it takes the
brain to tell the foot to push the brake pedal is one second, or at 60
mph about 88feet. ( that is about 176 feet, which is 76 feet
past where most cars cut off big rigs before the brake is even
BRAKING DISTANCE: Length it takes to stop a big rig once brakes are
applied, or at 60 mph 450 feet, that is about 525 feet past where most
drivers cut off big rigs.
Anyone who cares about there lives or anyone else should never cut off
a big rig with less than 6 seconds of space between them and a big
rig. Remember, at 60 mph a big rig needs about 626 feet to stop,
which is the distance of over 2 football fields.
