Take the Time to Stop and Think

There has been much upheaval in the transportation industry this year so it’s easy to forget about the basics. When it comes to safety and security, sometimes the small stuff is the big stuff. Simple decisions that might feel inconsequential can sometimes make all the difference when it comes to getting home safely.

It may seem like a small thing to check the weather before heading out but knowing that temperatures are supposed to drop just below freezing near a notoriously slippery stretch of road can keep a driver from taking unnecessary risks.

The same could be said about doing a quick walk around the truck after a 2-minute bathroom break. It might seem silly but it also might mean the difference between spotting a mechanical issue that could cause a dangerous situation down the road. 

We all know there is a lot to think about when it comes to getting deliveries where they need to go but stop and think about the little choices you could make to keep yourself and your vehicle safe. After all those small moments could make a big difference.
