Teaching new drivers big rig safety was the goal of a special event today. Indiana State Police partneredwith Buchta Trucking to educate new drivers the importance of safely sharing the road with big rigs.
Those new drivers were able to get behind the drivers' seat of a big rig to get perspective about what a semi-truck driver can and can not see. Police say an all too common mistake is driving in a truck's "no zone."
Sergeant Todd Ringle says if you are following a semi-truck and you can't see it's mirrors, the driver can't see you.
