While truck tracking characteristics are a primary consideration for intersection geometry and curve widening practices, most road geometric design standards, particularly alignment design standards, are based on the performance characteristics of passenger cars and car drivers. With the number of commercial vehicles on our roads predicted to continue increasing it is relevant to ask the question: At
