Truck drivers' blind spots
If you can't see the truck or bus driver in their side mirror, they can't see you.
Because it takes several seconds longer to pass a truck or bus than it does to pass a car, it's important to make sure you have plenty of clear road ahead to safely pass without going over the speed limit. See Passing for more information.
When driving past an oncoming truck or bus (one travelling in the opposite direction), drivers should keep firm control of the steering wheel to counter the effect of any air turbulence.
Remember, trucks and other large vehicles take up more room on the road when travelling around bends and at intersections, and may not always stay entirely in their own lane.
