Carrollton No Zone Truck Accidents

Commercial truck drivers have a duty to safely operate their trucks on our roads and interstates. Tractor trailer trucks weigh up to 80,000 pounds which is more than 40 times the weight of the average passenger car. Any minor truck accident has the possibility of causing devastating injuries for the truckers and other drivers involved. Passenger vehicle drivers sometimes drive in the area of a semi-truck where the truck driver cannot see the car or truck. When this happens, the truck driver and other driver can be a risk of being involved in a serious accident.

No Zone Truck Accidents

If you have driven a passenger car, you have no doubt passed a tractor trailer truck. What we mean by No Zones are those areas around a commercial truck where a passenger vehicle or motorcycle are not visible to a truck driver. Most times, a truck driver is completely unaware of the other passenger vehicles. The large tractor trailer trucks on the interstates and roads across America have large no zones that motorists should avoid.

The 3 Types of No Zones on Commercial Trucks

THE FRONT NO ZONE – The driving area or cab of a semi truck are high off the ground. Truckers have a hard time seeing things directly in front of them. That is why it is the law that truck drivers not follow too closely to the rear of other trucks and cars.
THE REAR NO ZONE – There is a large blind spot behind the trailers of commercial trucks. There is no rear view mirror in most commercial trucks do not have rear view mirrors like those in passenger cars and trucks. A god rule of thumb for drivers of passenger cars and trucks is to stay at a distance behind a tractor trailer truck where you can see the truck’s side mirrors.
THE SIDE NO ZONE – It is very difficult for truck drivers to see from the driver’s seat to the end of their trailer. Think about it, if you cannot see the driver’s face in the truck’s side mirrors, he or she cannot see you. Try not to stay in the side no zone on the side you intend to pass on.
