Accidents in Trucks’ “No Zone” Spots
“No zone” areas on commercial trucks are similar to a smaller vehicle’s blind spots. The no zone areas are places on an 18-wheeler that truck drivers are unable to see through their mirrors. Obviously, a passenger vehicle in a no zone area of a commercial truck risks a greater likelihood of being involved in a serious car accident. Driving in a no zone area is not illegal, but it can be dangerous, since the truck driver often cannot see your vehicle and may run into you.

What Are a Truck’s No Zone Areas?
Commonly recognized “no zone” areas on large trucks include:
- Right in front of a truck
- To the immediate side of a truck
- Right behind a truck
It is a truck driver’s responsibility to check his or her no zone areas before changing lanes or leaving the roadway. However, sometimes truck drivers fail to look in their no zone areas, and this negligence can lead to serious car accidents.
