Dangerous Blind Spots of a Truck

Trucks are incredibly intimidating on the road due to their size, weight, and abundance of blind spots. If you happen to be driving near or around a truck, the driver may not even realize you are there and attempt to change his or her lane, thus causing an accident. Though truck drivers are trained to look out for other cars on the road, it can be difficult to navigate such a large vehicle with limited visibility due to improperly placed mirrors and more.

The following are common blind spots of trucks:

  • The front
  • The back
  • Left side
  • Right side

As you can see, nearly all sides of a truck can pose certain dangers. If you are on the road next to an 18-wheeler and are concerned about not being in the driver’s line of vision, it is important that you first and foremost keep your distance. Though it is nearly impossible to completely avoid trucks, especially on the highway, you can greatly decrease your chances for accident or injury by maintaining a safe distance and making sure you don’t linger too long in the above blind spots.
