Filing a No-Zone Accident Claim in Atlanta
Truck drivers are required to receive extensive safety training before ever operating a commercial vehicle on their own. As such, truck drivers should be fully aware of their vehicle’s blind spots, or no-zones, and, moreover, how to ensure that other vehicles are not occupying these no-zones before ever changing lanes or making a turn. Unfortunately, some truck drivers are careless or reckless in the operation of their vehicles and directly contribute to serious accidents.
Know the No-Zones of a Large Truck
Though it is the truck driver’s responsibility to ensure that there are not any vehicles in one of his or her no-zones, it may be helpful for drivers to know what constitutes the four no-zones of large commercial trucks:
- A shallow margin of space just in front of the vehicle
- A long, tail-like area behind the vehicle
- A shallow margin of space on the driver’s side of the vehicle
- A shallow margin of space on the driver’s passenger side of the vehicle
