Even the most experienced truckers can have a hard time managing icy roads. Combined with poor visibility and reduced traction, the job of a CDL driver handling a big rig can be extremely challenging.  A CDL driver wanted at Pavlich needs to be aware and use caution when driving in taxing conditions.
