While large trucks are involved in about 12 % of fatal
crashes on Wisconsin roadways, the driver of the truck is at fault
less than one-third of the time, and the occupants of the other
vehicles are usually the ones injured or killed. The Motor Carrier
Safety Assistance Program provides enforcement and vehicle
inspections. Roadways are identified for safe truck travel.
Driving safely around trucks
Sharing the road with a truck or bus involves knowing a vehicle's
blind spots, how they maneuver and the distance they need to stop.
Your Vision Decision should be to stay out of a truck's
"No-Zones." There are four "No-Zones" around a
large truck where the driver is unable to see: the front, the back
and the sides of the truck.
