Three Ways to Avoid Blind Spot Truck Crashes
You may be able to avoid a Marietta tractor trailer wreck in a truck driver's blind spot, or no zone, by:
- Making Sure You Can See the Driver's Face in His Side Mirrors. If you cannot see the trucker's face, then the trucker probably can't see you.
- Keeping a Safe Distance from All Trucks. Do not drive close to a truck. Allow a suitable distance on all sides of you. If you are having trouble maintaining a proper distance from a truck, then pull over and let the truck pass.
- Do Not Pass a Truck on the Right. Truckers are expecting you to pass on the left and may not see you on the right.
