Safe Holiday Truck Travel

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

As the holidays quickly approach, those who drive buses and tractor trailers are noticing an increase in traffic on the roadways. As you continue to find an influx of traffic during the season, consider these tips to stay safe on the roadways this holiday season.

  1. Before you begin your travel, determine two main routes of travel for your destination. You should also have several alternative routes determined as well. This will allow for easy navigating should traffic become unbearable.
  2. Always consult traffic and weather reports before travel. This will help drivers remain safe on the roads by being aware of travel conditions. If severe weather is being called for, consider changing your time of departure.
  3. Eliminate distractions in your cabin while on the roads. Distractions such as eating, drinking, and smart devices will remove your attention from the road, leaving your vulnerable to accidents.
  4. Both commercial and residential drivers should be aware of each other’s presence on the road at all times. Road signs and traffic devices should be obeyed at all times to keep drivers safe during the busy holiday season.
  5. Maintaining your vehicle is essential to keeping all drivers safe this holiday season. This means bringing your fleet into Middleton & Meads for regular maintenance. Our team will ensure your vehicles remain in full working order. Noticing a serious problem before traveling will keep drivers, both commercial and residential, safe.
