You can drive slower. Seriously, have you ever seen the force of a truck tire blowout? I don’t drive next to them unless passing.

I Have!
Scared the crap out of me, sounds like a cannon. I was next to the truck and just barely ahead of the tire - Boom.

Always best to respect the big rigs on the highways and back roads...they don't want you next to them either- cars are a 'blind-spot' nuisance and are in the way if you need to make a quick lane change. Always give a truck travel space on the highways.
