Greetings and salutations to the trucking industry. My name is Alvis Violo and I will be writing a monthly column on how to keep our ourselves and our drivers safe on the road. My entire background is associated with the trucking industry having owned and operated a truck and trailer repair facility for over twenty years and most recently having founded a coast to coast national roadside assistance company dedicated to the trucking industry in Canada called Emergency Road Services of Canada Inc. My goal is not only to educate new drivers but also to refresh the memories of the seasoned drivers who keep our industry moving.
Although there are many winter safety tips, I have chosen 'How to drive in winter conditions' for my first edition. Winter brings snow, sleet and ice that leads to slower traffic, hazardous road conditions, unforeseen dangers and hot tempers. Since we can't avoid the winter, it's better to learn how to correctly drive during these conditions. Here are a few tips to help you avoid slipping and sliding this winter.
Although there are many more winter driving tips, following the simple tips above will hopefully aid you in becoming a safer and more efficient driver despite winter's adverse weather conditions.
