Commercial Vehicles

Do you know where the "no zone" is?

With large vehicles like trucks and buses, bicyclists should assume, if you’re on their side of the road, that you are in a blind spot. Blind spots are often alongside, close behind, or in front of large vehicles where the driver may not see you. To avoid blind spots, stay out of the “No Zone” (pictured right), use extra caution, watch for their turn signals, and remember that if you can’t see the driver in the mirrors they can’t see you.

Never pass a truck or bus on the right side, even if there is a bike lane and even if the vehicle is stopped.
