Driving near large trucks can be rather daunting. They’re so much bigger and heavier than passenger cars, which means they can cause a lot more damage than the average passenger vehicle.
Due to their massive size, trucks have very different (and a lot more) blind spots than you may realize. Review the infographic below to gain a better understanding of trucks’ blind spots, or “no-zones.”
It’s important that we all do our part to stay safe when driving around large trucks. As the infographic above displays, a truck driver won’t be able to see you if you’re in any of their no-zones.
Be cautious when driving near trucks, and especially when passing. Whenever possible, it’s a good idea to try to make eye contact with the truck driver so that you’re sure they know you’re there.
