How many blind spots do trucks have?

I know that tractor-trailers or semis can cause catastrophic damage if you get into an accident. That’s why I’m learning how to stay out of their blind spots. But I need more information. How many blind spots do trucks have and where are they located?

If you’re worried about blind spots from a truck, your concerns are valid. Trucks have four blind spots that are also referred to as no zones. The idea is to remain outside of these blind spots so the truck driver can always see you.
Here’s where the four blind spots on a truck are located:
  • About halfway between the front and rear of the truck on both sides
  • Directly behind the truck
  • Directly in front of the truck
Generally speaking, if you can’t see the side mirrors of a truck, they can’t see you. Always make sure that you can see a side mirror to protect yourself from
an accident
While a car insurance policy can’t keep you out of the no zones, it’s still a necessity to legally drive. If you think you’re paying too much for car insurance, download the
