Hamilton High School student drivers learned how to safely share the road with trucks as Rick Bernard from the Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association explained the concept of No-Zones. Bernard was a guest speaker in Jackie Rottler’s driver education class.
No-Zones are danger areas around trucks and buses where crashes are more likely to occur. Some No-Zones are actual blind spots where a car disappears from the view of drivers. The goal of the No-Zone campaign, conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, is to increase awareness of danger areas around commercial vehicles and ultimately reduce deaths, injuries and property damage due to crashes.
