CDL Driver Wanted: Safety Tips For Winter
A CDL driver wanted with Pavlich, Inc. is responsible for the safety of themselves and others on the road, and we wanted to share some tips on how to keep truck drivers safe during the winter. As a CDL driver wanted, getting your truck prepared for winter is essential in order to prevent major problems, including checking tire pressure, engine oil, and antifreeze levels before you head out on the road.
There are some basic supplies you’ll need in your truck to have on hand at all times during the winter months. If you’re going on an extended trip, you need to include a flashlight, flares, shovel, ice scraper, traction devices, a bag of sand, and matches. You’ll also need to pack warm clothes and blankets as well as bottled water and snacks just in case you get stuck on the road.
We know even the most experienced CDL drivers can have a hard time managing icy roads. Combined with poor visibility and reduced traction, the job of a CDL driver wanted can be extremely challenging. When driving in poor weather conditions you’ll want to see and be seen by other drivers. This means being keeping your lights on, being aware of your surroundings, and monitoring the road ahead, including bridge conditions.
As a CDL driver wanted, you need to be aware of road conditions in advance. There are plenty of weather and road apps that help truck drivers prepare and make adjustments to driving routes in real-time, in order to avoid the worst of winter weather and any congestion or traffic accidents.
