Watch your blind spots
Other motorists may not be aware of a truck's "no zones" — those where crashes are most likely to occur. Common "no zones" include:
- Off to the side just in front of the cab
- Just behind the side mirrors
- Directly behind the truck
If others aren't aware of these trouble spots, they may drive dangerously close. As frustrating as this can be, it's up to you to exercise caution before turning or changing lanes and to maintain a safe distance.
