Big Rig Accidents - Blind Spots
" One of the very few things that frightens me when driving a Big Rig, is the infamous blind spot" - John G. Stirling - The Province Newspaper September 3, 2013.
It's not a well kept secret.
The cab of certain commerical rigs is there for all to see.
You just need to know what you're looking for.
Its called a "Cabover" design. There's no hood. The driver sits directly over the engine.
And on the passengers side of the cab, between the front wheel and the gas tank, there's a blind spot.
Simply put, regardless of whether your're driving a car, pickup truck, scotter or motorcycle - the driver of the rig can't see you. You're in a "blind spot".
The driver of a "BIG RIG" should know this before they get behind the wheel. And take all reasonal steps to take this "blind spot" into account while operating their vehicle.
So. That's a taste of what you need to know if you're going to be successful in proving that the driver of a BIG RIG was responsible for your accident.
