When you're on the highway, one of the things that could put you at risk of being involved in a crash is driving in a truck driver's "no zone." A no zone is an area where the driver isn't able to see you. Essentially, these are blind spots along the sides and rear of the vehicle.
The thought of being involved in a truck accident is enough to make anyone cringe. Thanks to the size difference between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles, any type of crash can result in serious injury or even death.
As the driver of a passenger vehicle, you know that there will be times when you have to share the road with truckers. This typically comes into play when you're traveling on the highway.
In and around Bloomington, you jockey for space with them: semis, box trucks and other large commercial vehicles. In summer months, sharing the road with the professionals driving big rigs takes much concentration due to truck drivers' limited visual field and increased braking time. Adding to these factors, the Indiana winter months can make a road excursion a white-knuckle experience. During this time of year, the reduced daylight hours and poor weather conditions intensify the hazards all drivers face.
