Blind spots on an Over the Road (OTR) truck are a problem for both the driver and those around him or her. Having driven OTR, it's bad enough to have cars in blind spots. Bikes would be like a fly or misquito is to us, for the truck driver. Safety is a real concern for the Trucking industry and they are doing what they can to help eliminate the blind spots. Of course, the chief component in checking the blind spots is the driver. So it's not so much as eliminating the blind spots, as it is training and educating the drivers to constantly check their blind spots.
