Big, Semi-blind, and Barreling Down the Highway
That phrase does a pretty fair job of describing the dilemma posed by large commercial trucks. Of course, these big rigs are important to our modern way of life. But they can also create serious dangers for people in everyday passenger vehicles. Here’s what we mean:
- 80 feet long and 80,000 pounds: That’s the size and weight of a semi-truck pulling a trailer filled with heavy goods. It’s easy to see why a vehicle of such massive proportions can cause serious damage if it gets out of control.
- Blind spots all around: Finding yourself trapped in one of a truck’s many blind spots is disturbingly easy. They exist on both sides of the vehicle, as well as the front and rear. For your own safety, stay out of these zones, if at all possible.
- No time to slow down: The image of a stressed-out trucker driving too fast is more than a stereotype. It’s a problem that’s known and discussed within the truck driving community itself.
