driver cannot see YOU. A truck’s blind spots are immediate in front, on either side of the car and up to 200 feet in the rear. A trucker may not be able to seethe road directly in front of the cab. If the tractor has along hood, the trucker may not be able to seethe first 10-20 feet in front of the bumper, plenty of room fora motorcycle or car to slip unnoticed into a dangerous position. If you are stopped behind a truck on an uphill grade, stay to the left in your lane so the driver can see you. When stopped in a traffic lane, leave extra space in front of your car in case the truck rolls back when it starts to move. Pay close attention to the large vehicle’s turn signals. Trucks make wide right turns that require them to swing to the left before turning right. Always make sure you know which way the vehicle is turning before trying to pass. Do not linger beside a large vehicle because you may not be visible to the driver in the wide area the truck needs for maneuvering a turn. When you are near a Commercial Vehicle Weigh Station, avoid driving in the right lane so slow-moving trucks can easily merge back onto the roadway. Dim your lights at night. Bright lights reflected in the mirrors can blind the driver. Never underestimate the size and speed of approaching trucks and buses. Because of their large size they often appear to be traveling more slowly than their actual speed.
