Correct answer is:
  • (A)  Behind any vehicle that causes backover accidents
Explanation: defines the “blind zone” as the area behind the vehicle that is largely responsible for backover accidents. It is also the area in front of the vehicle contributing to frontover accidents. The area next to a vehicle that cannot be seen through rear-view mirrors is the “blind spot.” In general, the blind zone for most vehicles measures 7 -8 feet wide and 20 – 30 feet long.
