Regardless of their year, make, or model, all motor vehicles have certain “blind spots”, or, locations where the driver is unable to see, even with the use of mirrors. Due to the inherent structural considerations of commercial trucks, these spaces tend to be much larger for those vehicles, creating a potentially dangerous circumstance for any motorist who should happen to drive into a truck’s blind spot. These are referred to as “no zones”, and should be avoided whenever possible. However, a truck driver has a responsibility to monitor his or her no zones so as to remain aware of the entry or exit of other automobiles from these unseen positions.
