What is a pilot car or truck escort?

If you’ve ever been on a highway, you’ve most likely seen a pilot car or truck escort. They’re vehicles that protect large trucks from the dangers of the road. But what is a pilot car? It’s simply an escort vehicle for high-risk vehicles. These include large trucks, mobile homes, and even large mobile equipment. Usually, they help direct traffic around these vehicles when they’re stopped on the road or in a construction zone.  A pilot car or truck escort is a person who “escorts” vehicles that are traveling on roads under construction and congested areas, by driving in front of the convoy and warning other drivers that there is a convoy ahead. Pilot cars are usually equipped with a sign board indicating the type of vehicles being escorted. The driver of a pilot car usually has a radio to communicate with the convoy, but some states may require two-way communication. Generally, the pilot car follows behind the convoy, although some states require that it be in front of the convoy.

A pilot car operator helps to ensure the safety of other drivers. He or she works with a team of flaggers, who direct traffic around a work site or through a construction zone. If a driver is unfamiliar with the area, a flagger can help them navigate safely. The pilot car operator job requires a special permit from the state. A pilot car operator uses a variety of tools to direct traffic, such as flares and flags.
