Those cutout windows on pickup trucks... Do they serve a purpose or are they just for decoration?

Asked by kevbo (25634points) February 15th, 2008

Generally, on the larger trucks the side windows have a spot toward the front where the window frame dips down. What’s that about?

It allows the driver to see down to the road to see, for instance, whether they’re about to run some poor, unsuspecting Honda Civic driver off into the median.

on pick ups it is to view side mirrors better as they are larger due to to these trucks hauling loads. Segdeha is talking about 18 wheelers I belive.

it’s for visibility of other cars.

Yeah, gooch, that’s what I was getting at. Okay, I get it now.
