Some professional drivers have relied on non-trucking specific GPS units to route them. In following the advice of the device, they have unwittingly set themselves up for failure. They may think, “But my GPS told me to go this way!” and proceed on without consulting their atlas, taking heed of warning signs or using common sense.
Many states are cracking down on truckers who rely on satellite devices to direct them onto prohibited routes and end up crashing into overpasses that are too low for their rigs. Or they find themselves on roadways unsuitable for big rigs and they get caught in dead ends where they have to back out or try and turn around. That’s when accidents occur!
Don’t get caught by using a GPS device. Make sure you check your atlas, pay attention to all road signage and most important slow down and ensure there is enough clearance.
