Trucks have massive blind spots, also known as “no-zones.” No-zones are found on the sides, rear and front of large trucks. While many trucks use additional mirrors to reduce the size of their no-zones, any vehicle traveling close to a truck’s no-zones has a higher risk of being hit.
Trucks are also more likely than cars to veer out of their lane because of their size. This is especially true during turns. Wide turns are one of the most dangerous ways to be hit or crushed in a no-zone.
