Weekly Safety Post-Large Blind Spots

For this week’s safety post, we are sharing tips on staying out of large blind spots. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration reminds you that:

  • A commercial motor vehicle has large blind spots around all four sides.
  • Take extra care in passing and being passed by large trucks and buses.
  • Stay out of blind spots when a truck or bus is turning, backing up or changing lanes.
  • Large vehicles need longer following distance to see vehicles behind them. If you can’t see the driver in his or her side mirror, the driver can’t see you.

Take a look at the infographic for safe spots out of a large truck’s blind spots.
