Top Facts About Semi-trailer Truck Blind Spots to Keep You Safe on the Road
Large commercial trucks have enormous blind spots. While commercial truck drivers are trained to watch for vehicles that may be in their blind spots, they aren’t always as cautious as they should be. Complicating the problem is the fact that other motorists may be unaware or less mindful of the truck’s No Zones — the areas that should be avoided at all costs.
According to the most current statistics from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, 40,567 Florida truck accidents resulted in 33 fatalities and as many as 2,200 injuries in a single year alone. In many cases, these devastating collisions occur because drivers fail to pay appropriate attention to a truck’s blind spots.
