State Court Judges Learn Big Truck Safety

altCan that big rig see as you attempt to pass it along I-75?  You’ve seen the stickers: “If you can’t see my mirrors, I can’t see you.”  How true is that?  The judges of the State Courts found out first hand just how hard it is to see “4-wheelers” — what truckers call cars and small trucks — from the cab of a tractor-trailer.  Representatives from Walmart were on hand to teach an hour course at the Council of State Court Judge’s May 2013 meeting and to demonstrate just how much or how little a truck driver can see.  After the training, judges had the opportunity to hop in the cab of a truck to experience the visibility of a truck directly behind the tractor-trailer and a car in the truck’s blind spot.  Senior Judge Robert Mock, at left, takes a look from the cab of the tractor-trailer.
