June 6: The government reminded residents that they can help prevent traffic accidents by being aware of large commercial vehicles’ blind spots—areas along both sides of the truck that aren’t covered by the rear-view and side mirrors. Safety tips:
- Don’t tailgate
- If you can see the driver in his side mirror, he can see you
- Avoid sudden moves
- Allow extra space for a turning truck
- Allow more time and space to pass a truck
- If you’re behind a truck and can’t see its side mirrors, you’re too close.
