Blind spots are areas of the road that a driver can't see while looking forward or looking in the rearview or side-view mirrors. The most common blind spots are areas near the back of the vehicle on both the left and right side and low spots immediately in front of and behind a vehicle. Larger vehicles, such as those often used in work settings, tend to have larger blind spots, and therefore, drivers of these vehicles need to be even more careful. Always adjust your mirrors to reduce your blind spots as much as possible. But never trust your mirrors 100%. Before you change lanes, put on your blinker and always turn your head and check in the direction you want to turn to make sure there is no vehicle in your blind spot to the side. Likewise, to reduce the chance that another vehicle will accidentally turn into you, minimize the time spent in other vehicles blind spots.
