Why Are Some Areas Around a Truck Dangerous?

Big Trucks on the Road

The sight of a large truck on the road is not surprising to most drivers. These trucks are important for the economy as a whole, and they are vital in ensuring that we as consumers get the products we want and need in our lives. These trucks are large in every sense of the word, and so it’s important for both truck drivers and civilian drivers to be aware of each other and be courteous to each other as we drive alongside each other on the road.

For both truck drivers and civilian drivers, it’s important to know that there are certain areas around a truck that should be avoided to ensure that an accident will not occur. These areas are simply blind spots on trucks that, while they can be improved upon with the use of mirrors, cannot be completely fixed. For civilians, it’s important not to sit in these blind spots for too long to help ensure that they are safe and seen, and truck drivers must remember that these spots exist and that care must be taken when maneuvering with other vehicles on the road. Despite these dangerous areas, it’s still very possible to drive safely around these large vehicles and avoid accidents and injuries.

In the event that you are injured by a truck while driving on the road, be sure to contact a personal injury lawyer, as you might need help in getting the compensation you need.

What Are the “No Zones” for Large Trucks?

Trucks are incredibly large, which means there are areas around them that are hidden due to their size. There are three main “no zones” on trucks where trucks cannot see you and that you should try to avoid being in too long, which includes:

Why Are Some Areas Around a Truck Dangerous?Behind the truck: Directly behind a truck is an area a truck driver really cannot see at all. While it is not bad to drive behind a truck, it’s important that you give an appropriate amount of distance between you and the truck so that, should the truck need to stop suddenly, you can have plenty of time to stop as well. Also, if you are behind a truck that is trying to back up, get out of the way as soon as possible.

Beside either side of the cab: When you are passing a truck, there is a point near the front of the trailer and next to the cab that the driver cannot see you. It’s important that you pass a truck quickly because if you take your time, the driver may not realize you are there and could attempt to transfer lanes, which will cause an accident. Never be slow when passing a truck so as to avoid an accident.

Directly ahead of the truck: Trucks are very high off the ground, which means that small vehicles directly in front of them are nearly impossible to see. Never drive directly in front of a truck unless in situations in which it cannot be avoided. Also, when passing a truck, wait to merge back over until you can see the trucks headlights in your rearview mirror so as to avoid merging back over too soon and being in a place a truck driver cannot see you.
