Winter Weather and the Truck Driver.jpgOld man winter is here. Many parts of the United States are feeling his wrath in recent days. Last week, the bomb cyclone hit the Northeast and the Midwest has been below freezing for an extended period of time. Here are 5 winter weather driving tips for truck drivers.

TransLand Values Safety

1. Slow and steady
Slow and steady will win the race when it comes to icy and snowy conditions. Most accidents are due to overspeeds. Don't be a statistic.

2. Go the distance
In a matter of a split second, a rear ending can happen if you are following another vehicle too closely. Give them and yourself some extra space.

3. Be ready
A smart truck driver is always ready for winter weather. Keep essentials in your truck like blankets, flares, safety triangles and more. Check out this essential list.

4. Use your best judgement
Your previous experiences will come in handy. Trust your instincts.

5. Know when to go
No load is worth your life. If conditions get too bad, pull off the road to a safe place.
