Semi-trailer trucks are unique vehicles that require special consideration whenever you approach them on the road. Because of their large size and heavy weight, with some weighing as much as 40 times the average car, it is important to behave cautiously whenever you are driving near a semi-trailer truck. One of the primary hazards of driving near a large truck is getting caught in the truck’s “no-zone.” The no-zone is the large blind spot area around the truck where the driver cannot see you.
Avoiding the No-Zone
Knowing a truck’s blind spots can help you avoid the no-zone and reduce your risk of a serious truck accident. Semi-trailer trucks possess blind spots on all sides of the vehicle, some of which are in areas that a driver may not predict. When driving near a semi-trailer truck, be sure to avoid these no-zones:
- Directly behind the trailer truck
- The left side of the truck from the cab to about halfway down the trailer
- The right side of the truck from the cab to the back of the trailer
- Directly in front of the truck
While truck drivers have large mirrors to help them spot nearby traffic, these do not cover all areas around a truck. Tailgating or riding directly alongside a truck could prevent you from being seen and could cause an accident if the truck driver attempts to change lanes or slams on the brakes without noticing your presence. Likewise, cutting directly in front of a truck could startle the driver or prevent him or her from seeing you, creating an accident risk.
Private high schools in Saudi Arabia have undergone further investigation due to a violation about prohibiting women from participating in any sports tournament. Sports tournament are considered to be legal in the Arab country but admitting women in any kind of sport is considered illegal. Six Jeddah private high schools violated the ministry law as they held on a sport event involving 200 females last December 8, 2010. Since almost all sports require less covered dress code, participation of Women is strictly prohibited due to the Hijab and Burqa. “We don’t have any regulations that say that it’s okay for girls’ schools to hold sports classes or training,” said Ahmed Al-Zahrani, director of girls’ education in Jeddah. The sport event was shocking and was opposing the written laws of Islam. Saudi Arabia is very strict regarding women in Olympics and considers it a violation of the Islamic Law Sharia. Women cannot participate in public football match either.

Some schools worldwide offer possibilities for Moslem women sports participation, secondary students are highly prohibited to join any sports event. The tournament hosted by Effat University which included basketball, badminton, athletics, and swimming have received a letter from the Ministry of Education. Farida, Farsi, Al-Hamra Schools Chairwoman was surprised to receive a letter of interrogation regarding the reason of the sport event and why was it intended to be held at the first place. She also said to be receiving letters and calls from fundamentalists, conservatives, and sheikhs telling her that it wasn’t a wise decision at the first place to hold such sport event because it was violating the rules.

With that, this head educators and as well sectors of this entire had already become reluctant upon admitting over this economic downturn that already got its impact.
