Top 9 Tips To Driving Safely Beside Large Trucks

Lots of accidents occur when cars tend to compete with large trucks most especially on when it is a small road. That is why Government take measures by banning trucks from moving during the day.
Notwithstanding these tips should help prevent mishaps:
1. Do not drive in a blind spot
Large trucks and buses have huge blind spots around the front, back, and sides of the vehicle. If you can’t see the driver in the truck’s side mirror, assume that the driver can’t see you. Don’t drive in a blind spot – slow down or move ahead to stay visible. Be particularly careful when emerging near a truck or bus. You may likely be in a blind spot.
2. Make sure you can see the driver in the mirror before passing.
Signal clearly then move into the left lane and accelerate so that you can get past the truck or bus safely and promptly. Don’t linger in the blind spot.  Make sure the truck or bus is visible in your rear view mirror before you pull in front; give it extra space. Also, never pass from the right lane.
3. Tailgating a truck presents added dangers.
First, it puts you in a blind spot. Because trucks are so high off the ground, if you fail to stop in time or get hit from behind, your vehicle could slide under the truck. Getting too close when stopped is also dangerous.
4. Anticipate wide turns
Trucks require extra turning room – they swing wide, or may even initiate a turn from a middle (rather than far right) lane. If a truck has its turn signal on, never try to squeeze by it or get between the vehicle and the curb.
5. Be patient because Trucks have operating restrictions, and sometimes use technology like speed limiters. Honking, driving aggressively, or waving through traffic won’t make the trip faster, but can cause dangerous distractions and crashes. Also, no matter how in a hurry you may be, avoid driving alongside a truck.
6. Never forget to buckle up
Wearing your seat belt is one of the most important things that you and your passengers can do to save your lives. A seatbelt may keep you in your seat and help you maintain control of your vehicle.
7. Stay focused if you need to attend to a text, a call or an app, get off the road and stop driving. 
Driving distracted can be as dangerous. Even eating while driving or adjusting your radio can take your eyes off the road long enough for a crash to occur. Don’t underestimate the speed of a truck or bus particularly when making turns, merging, or changing lanes.
8. Don’t drive when tired
Take regular breaks, get another driver to relieve you, or get off the road and find a safe place to rest.
9. Never drive under the influence of alcohol and other drugs because it impairs both judgment and reaction time. 
There is no safe limit for drinking before driving. Many prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs cause dizziness or sleepiness and can slow reaction time. If your medication carries a warning, take it seriously and have someone else drive or find another way to your destination.
We hope these tips can save someone’s life. Stay safe!

8 Facts Every Man Should Know About Sex During A Woman's Period

There is nothing wrong with having sex while a woman is on her period, but the re are some details about this situation you (and she) might want to know first.
1. The Basic Biology
Sex ed. told you the basics about a woman's menstrual cycle, but here's what's important to know for this situation. A period marks the end of the body's monthly attempt to get pregnant. Awaiting a fertilized egg, the uterus developed a thickened lining to keep this potential occupant happy. If an egg doesn't get fertilized, the body can't sustain this special womb, so hormone levels drop and the lining is shed. "The bleeding is because there is a blood supply that went into those tissues, and it bleeds until the tissue comes out enough and the blood vessels start to close off," says Rowen. 2. What it Feels Like
Women may already be in a considerable amount of pain during their period, so sex may seem like it would add to that. The short answer is: it shouldn't. "Th…

2. Put your own thoughts aside while you listen.
Let her explain herself. Just like you want to get your own thoughts out, so does she. She deserves the opportunity to tell you why she feels a certain way. So put your own thoughts aside as she does this so you’re not constantly putting her down even in your mind.
