Road position and large vehicles

In a car there are of course blind spots, but as soon as you drive a lorry you realise how significant the blind spots are for those vehicles.

For one simple thing even with vans you can't look out the back as there is often no rear window, this gives the impression of having much less visibility.

Long vehicles also will often have to have a much wider turning circle before making a manoeuvre, and you should be aware of this.

For instance if a long vehicle indicates one way but then starts turning the other it can be confusing and you might think they've made the wrong signal.

Whilst that is possible the more likely explanation is that they have indicated correctly but need to go the other way first to get the angle to turn.

In wet conditions you also need to be careful and particularly when overtaking them as huge amounts of spray can get thrown up from the wheels. Additionally when it is windy then you may feel pushed out to the right as you overtake them.
