No, riding in a trucker's blind spots is dangerous and can cause an accident. Like cars, trucks have blind spots that make it hard to tell if another vehicle is in the way when merging or changing lanes. Trucks have many more and much larger blind spots than regular cars. There are large blind spots to the right and rear of the truck as well as smaller blind spots at the right front corner and mid-left side. Instead of traveling along the side of the truck in its blind spot, you should carefully pass the truck or travel far enough behind it so the truck driver can safely change lanes and/or merge.
