The Language of Driving

Every profession has terms and abbreviations of it’s own.  Sometimes unique, and sometimes re-purposed or re-cycled from general usage.  Here are a few terms and abbreviations that make our communications more efficient:

Blind Spot – Areas around a commercial vehicle that are not visible to the driver either through the windshield, side windows or mirrors.

ETA – estimated time of arrival

Tail Swing – the distance between the rear axle and the end of the bus.  The rear tire acts as a pivot point for the end of the bus which swings out when you turn.  BE AWARE – This can cause that back section of the bus to strike an object (car, bike, person, pole, etc.) if you are not careful.
