CALGARY, Alta. — The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) and Alberta Transportation are hitting the road to teach drivers how to share the highways with trucks.

In order to show four-wheelers just how important it is to stay out of a truck’s blind spots, there will be trucks on hand with passenger vehicles strategically placed around them in places where the truck driver would be unable to see them. Visitors will have a chance to walk around the display, then climb into the cab to see for themselves how difficult it is for a trucker to see those blind spots.

The display will be available all day at Calgary’s Northland Village Mall on Aug. 9 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and then at the Deerfoot Mall Aug. 16, also from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
