How can I avoid a large truck's no zones?

From broken bones to lost lives and financial ruin, the outcome of a large truck accident may be devastating for everyone involved and their families. After all, due to the sheer size of semis and other large trucks, crashes are particularly hazardous. If you live in New London, Connecticut, or anywhere else in the country, it is very important to understand how to avoid the no zones of a large truck.

According to Connecticut's Official State Website, large trucks have no zones, which are also known as blind spots, on each side. In order to safely share the road with large trucks, it is vital to recognize each of these zones and stay out of them whenever you are on the road. When passing a truck, it is vital to leave sufficient room, especially since it takes longer for large trucks to slow down. Don't drive immediately behind a large truck and understand that truckers may not be able to see if you are driving right next to the truck on the right-hand side. When driving on the left-hand side of a large truck, make sure that you can see the truck driver's side rear view mirror.

Sometimes, truck accidents occur even though motorcyclists and other drivers were obeying all traffic laws. From negligent truck maintenance to fatigue that affects over-worked truckers, there are all sorts of problems that may lead to a crash. If you have been involved in a large truck accident, it is crucial to explore all of your options.
