Like many others in Atlanta, GA, you’re no doubt excited about summer. You know that warmer weather means more customers or clients for your business. You know warm weather puts people in a good mood and makes them want to buy what you’re selling. But you can’t really get anywhere if your team of over the road drivers are getting into accidents. So, what can you do to ensure safety for everyone? We hope these driving safety tips below will help, but if you need additional assistance, contact us at the number at the bottom.
Slow Down and Watch for Animals
During the warmer months of the year, animals come out of hibernation and explore their surroundings. Deer are infamous for running into roads, so your truck driving experts need to know that they have to look out for them; if they don’t, they could seriously injure an animal and get into an accident. In many cases, there will be warning signs about animals that try to cross the street. It’s important to go slow, even if the driver thinks the odds of running into an animal is low. It’s hard to know what an animal will do so caution should always be exercised.
Rain and Flooding
Of course, summer isn’t just known for warmer weather—anybody who is anybody knows that summer has its share of rain—rain that can lead to large puddles and flooding. During a storm, steering wheel handling can be poor, and roads can be slippery. Over the road drivers need to be extra careful in bad weather.
