OMG, it's like, where did he come from?
Today, I'm speaking of the community we live in, the vehicles. In every vehicle there are the window pillars on either side of the windshield. The pillars range two inches wide to five inches or greater on buses. These pillars, as small as they are, can create a dangerous blind spot. These blind spots are second only to ones outside the range of rear-view mirrors.
A bicycle riding towards you on the right side can very easily be obscured for a second or two. The next thing you know, you are accelerating and they appear in front of your vehicle. Always remember, although you have looked left and right, the pillars are a blind spot. Expect a pedestrian, motorcycle, small car or bike to cross your path that you may have missed. Remember, we are safety driven.
