No-Zones around large trucks
Sharing the road with a truck or bus involves knowing that vehicle's blind spots, how they maneuver and the distance they need to stop.
A large truck has four serious blind spots or "No-Zones": the front, back and sides of the truck. Drivers who travel in a truck's "No-Zone" restrict a trucker's ability to take action to avoid a dangerous situation. Your Vision Decision should be to stay out of a truck's "No-Zone."
A good rule of thumb when sharing the road with a truck or bus is, if you can't see the truck or bus driver in their side mirror, they can't see you.
