If you are like many motorists, you may try and avoid driving around these massive, and massively heavy, vehicles as much as possible, but there are times when you have no choice but to share the road with them. Just as you have blind spots that make it tough to see certain areas outside your car while at the wheel, semi-truck drivers do, too. Knowing where they exist may help you learn to avoid or navigate around them.
