Keep your eyes and ears open near construction sites

Posted on Tuesday, February 27, 2018

Blind spots are all around vehicles, but their size and location vary according to the type of vehicle. The main blind spots are located in front, at the rear and on the sides of the vehicle.

The numerous construction projects on the downtown campus have brought an increased circulation of large trucks on campus, such as near the James Administration, Wong and Rutherford buildings. We would like to remind you to be particularly vigilant when walking or cycling near construction sites. Heavy vehicles have large blind spots (more info here) so stay at least three meters away from them when they are moving, and never assume the driver has seen you. Always follow directives from security and signaling agents or construction workers – their goal is to keep you safe. Try to avoid sending texts or checking emails on your phone and use only one earbud if you are using headphones. Get more safety tips online.
