Truckers Can’t Always See You.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 840,000 blind spot accidents occur each year resulting in 300 deaths. Drivers that are cutting off trucks and swerving in and out of lanes are putting everyone at risk of injury. If a small car is within 30 feet of a truck, chances are the truckers cannot see the driver with enough time to react. During pre-trip planning, we suggest inspecting mirrors and cameras to reduce the chances of accidents this season.
