Chapter 1: Bicycle Safety Around Large Vehicles
Safety around large vehicles
is everybody's responsibility. The professional
truck driver is trained to look for people, motorcycles,
cars, bicycles and other moving and non-moving objects
that present a hazard to the driver or to themselves.
But the view from a large vehicle can often be misleading
or obstructed because so much depends on the side
mirrors. There are "blind spots" in the driver's
range of vision where people and small vehicles
can momentarily hide. Only by being aware of this
problem can drivers, other motorists and pedestrians
work together to make the environment around a large
vehicle safe for everyone.
Let's take a short trip with "Ol' Blue®", and
RJ, the driver, to see for ourselves what each person
must do to make sharing the road with a large vehicle
safe for all.
