What is a No-Zone?


The "No-Zone" represents the danger areas around trucks and buses where crashes are more likely to occur. Some No-Zones are actual blind spots or areas around trucks and buses where your car "disappears" from the view of the drivers. These blind spots are the Side No-Zone, Rear No-Zone, and Front No-Zone areas. The right-side blind spot is doubly dangerous because trucks and buses make wide right turns! Knowing the No-Zones can save your life!

For examples of "No-Zone" situations to avoid, click below.

  • Side No-Zone
