George Herald - Auto Dealer - - News -

Dri­ving in the vi­ci­ni­ty of he­a­vy vehi­cles ex­po­ses the dri­ver to nu­me­rous ad­di­ti­o­nal risk fac­tors.

The first is the lar­ge blind a­re­as be­si­de the he­a­vy vehi­cle, es­pe­ci­al­ly to the left. A­void the­se w­he­re pos­si­ble, par­ti­cu­lar­ly w­hen the vehi­cle is tur­ning.

So­mething el­se to keep an eye out for is ob­jects that ha­ve be­co­me lod­ged be­t­ween the ty­res of trucks with dou­ble w­heels.

W­hen you fol­low a truck, check the spa­ces be­t­ween its re­ar w­heels for such ob­jects.

If you see so­mething stuck be­t­ween two ty­res, keep a sa­fe dis­tan­ce in ca­se it flies out to­wards you.
