According to published reports, the car driver is the cause of up to 75 percent of all truck-related auto fatalities, and 35 percent of these occur in a truck’s blind spots. For that reason, the Minnesota Trucking Association has created this instructional video on safely sharing the road with semi-trucks.
- Paying attention to a truck’s blind spots.
- Don’t linger when passing a large truck.
- If you can’t see the driver in his/her mirror, they can’t see you.
- Allow for plenty of room when merging around a large truck.
- Don’t get distracted when driving.

#SO002 - VHS (10 min. 1997)
Four year old Jamie Lee Burke was killed on November 10, 1994 when a commercial truck driver under the influence of alcohol slammed into the back of the car in which she was riding. It was learned that the driver had already been cited for operating a commercial vehicle under the influence. But because of an administrative error, his license was not suspended and he continued to operate commercial vehicles until the accident which took Jamie’s life. This film shows every person at every level of commercial vehicle enforcement the critical importance of their job and the consequences that can result from seemingly insignificant mistakes.
