Stay out of the heavy vehicle blind spots

The blind spot diagram, in yellow shade, shows the blind spots are located:

  • immediately in front of the truck
  • beside the truck driver’s door
  • on the passenger side which runs the length of the truck and extends out three lanes
  • directly behind the truck.

Remember: if you cannot see the truck driver’s mirror, the truck driver cannot see you.

Watch this video, it highlights restrictions regarding blind spots plus offers best advice.

We would like to acknowledge and credit Whiteline Television as the creator of the videos in conjunction with the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) Heavy Vehicle road safety initiative.  We appreciate their support and believe Working collaboratively is in the best interest of road and public safety and seeks to reduce competing messages and advise.
