Drafting on the Highway

Some highway drivers use certain tactics in order to increase their overall gas mileage. Although these methods can produce positive results in terms of fuel economy, they often throw those motorists and anyone around them into a position of extreme risk. In particular, drafting, or the act of following very closely behind another vehicle, endangers both the motorists who engage in this activity and those nearby.

If you or someone you love has suffered harm due to another driver’s reckless actions, you may be eligible to receive compensation.

DRAFTING AND ACCIDENT RISKS

Drafting works by reducing the drag a vehicle experiences because of wind resistance. Especially on windy days, open highways can drain a vehicle’s gas tank significantly faster because of the force of air on the car or truck. By tailing a larger vehicle, a motorist can essentially use that vehicle to cancel the brunt of wind resistance. However, the following problems can occur because of drafting:

  • Striking the back under-ride guard of a truck
  • Back corner under-ride accidents
  • Rear-ending a car or SUV
  • Failing to stop at a traffic light
  • Failing to adjust to changes in the road

Most drivers know that maintaining good sight lines in all directions is an important safety measure while on the road. At the very least, being able to see clearly in front of the vehicle is necessary to help avoid accidents caused by upcoming road conditions. However, when individuals draft behind another truck or car, they lose their most important sight line, placing them and the vehicles around them in extreme danger.
