Truck drivers themselves have blind spots commonly referred to as “no zones” that make it hard to see some areas around the truck when driving. These “no zones” extend to 10 to 20 feet in front and 200 feet behind the truck. Plus, there are additional no zone areas on either side of the truck that are undefined. These are the areas where accidents with trucks and other motorists usually occur.
Trucks also create wind gusts which affect other motorists who are driving beside the truck making them to lose full control of their vehicles.
The time taken by trucks to turn is another issue on roads. Truck drivers may be trained to turn safely and to indicate when they are changing lanes but other motorists tend to be impatient and not so observant which also leads to many truck accidents.
You can mitigate the risk of truck accidents and the resultant costs involved to cater for injuries to other motorists and road users, injury to the truck driver, and damage to the truck itself by insuring your truck. There are a variety of truck insurance options to cater for all different outcomes of truck road accidents.
