Why do big trucks start turning the opposite way slightly before making their turn?

My Answer: Drivers are taught the “button hook” turn as part of truck driver training. The turn draws a line with the truck that looks like the old hooks used to fasten ladies buttons back in the day. It’s shaped similar to a shepherd’s crook, drawing a straight line then bulging out to one side before hooking back the other way.
