Truck blind spots

Beware of a truck’s blind spot

Drivers of heavy vehicles and truck use their mirrors to stay aware of what is around them, but if you sit in a truck’s blind spot you will be invisible to the driver.

If you can’t see the sideview mirrors on a truck while travelling behind the vehicle, the driver cannot see you approaching.

Drivers are also unable to see vehicles at various points around the vehicle, particularly the left-hand side, so if you’re a driver, motorcyclist, cyclist or pedestrian, stay clear of the passenger door and make yourself visible to the driver.
