Ice on your windshield or back of your mirror means ice on the road. When you see ice, or conditions for ice exist, slow down! The ice doesn’t have to be packed on the roadway to be dangerous – thin ice can quickly develop into a thick problem.
KNOW YOUR LIMITS
When it comes to driving in the winter know your limits; there is no load worth your life or the lives of others.
If you are on dangerous roadways, the safest thing for you to do is find a safe place to stop and wait it out.
Whether its rain, sleet, ice, heavy winds, or snow, make sure you take the proper precautions.
Winter weather can limit or reduce visibility, decrease traction, and make driving, in general, much harder than normal.
Be Smart, Be Safe!
Use your Signals
A recent study found drivers fail to signal 48% of the time when changing lanes and 25% of the time when making a turn. That study estimated turn signal neglect is a factor in as many as 2 million crashes per year.
February is National Heart Month
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. About 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year – that’s one in every four deaths. To prevent heart disease:
1. Eat a healthy diet.
2. Maintain a healthy weight.
3. Exercise regularly.
4. Don’t smoke.
5. Limit alcohol use.
Although it is nice to have the light, heat and smell of a candle and the heat from other sources, our offices and well as are trucks are not equipped to be the place for use of these items. We have had incidents in both our offices as well as our trucks by use of devices that have a flame. No device that uses a flame either open like a candle or enclosed like a propane heater is allowed to be used in our trucks or offices.
All other heating devices (non flame) used in either location must be of limited use, approved by maintenance and have an auto shutoff feature.
**The shop areas are allowed use of propane devices as authorized by shop manager.
Winter Safe Driving Tips:
Follow these safe driving tips to help stay safe!
1. Clear off all windows, mirrors, and exterior lights completely before driving. If snow or ice builds up while you drive, make sure to pull over and take a few minutes to clean everything off again.
2. Keep tires and brakes in good condition. Tires should be properly inflated and brakes should be correctly working.
3. Maintain a sufficient following distance from all vehicles and continue a safe speed that gives you plenty of time to react.
4. Plan your route. Make sure you know what types of roads you will be facing and your vehicle is equipped to handle these roads.
5. Check cross-traffic prior to reaching and traveling through an intersection to help avoid collisions.
6. Do not drive if you feel fatigued. Your ability to properly react to your environment will weaken with fatigue, diminishing your ability to drive as safely as possible.
7. Don’t push your truck or yourself to do more than you can in unsafe conditions. If snow drifts are so bad you can’t see the road or ice is so thick you cannot stop properly, stop the truck at a safe area until conditions get better. If you need to stop, continue checking the weather and road conditions and stay in close contact with your driver manager.
Secure Loose Objects
Many injuries are caused by loose objects that "fly" in a collision. When the vehicle decelerates, a loose object temporarily keeps traveling at the speed the vehicle was originally going, until it hits something else in the slowing vehicle -- like you, maybe. Even fairly light-weight objects can cause serious injuries. A tissue box weighing half a pound, at 60mph, would feel like about 30 pounds hitting you in the back of the head!
There have been several preventable incidents of drivers running into a mound of snow just off the roadway or in a parking lot causing damage to their tractor, trailer or property. Don’t assume the snowbank is going to give; the snow could be tightly packed - solid ice underneath. It may be covering a stationary object such as a boulder, pole or possibly a passenger vehicle.
