SIDE NO-ZONES
 Don’t “hang out” on either side of trucks or buses!
They have big blind spots on both sides. If you can’t see the driver’s face in his side-viewmirror, he can’t see you. If that driver needs to change lanes for any reason, you could bein big trouble!
REAR NO-ZONES
– Avoid Tailgating!
Unlike cars, trucks and buses have huge No-Zones directly behind them. The truck or busdriver can’t see your car back there, and you can’t see what’s going on ahead of you. If the truck or bus driver brakes suddenly, you have no place to go.
FRONT NO-ZONES
– Pass Safely!
Don’t cut-in front too soon after passing. Truck and bus drivers need nearly twice thetime and room to stop as cars. Look for the whole front of the truck in your rear-viewmirror before pulling in front, and then don’t slow down!
BACKING UP NO-ZONE
 Pay Closer Attention!
 Never cross behind a truck that is backing up! Hundreds of motorists and pedestrians arekilled or injured, each year, by ignoring trucks backing up. Truck drivers do not have arear-view mirror and may not see you cutting in behind them.
WIDE RIGHT TURNS
 Avoid the “Squeeze Play”!
Truck and bus drivers sometimes need to swing wide to the left in order to safely make aright turn. They can’t see cars squeezing in between them and the curb. Watch for their  blinkers and give them room to turn.
