Everyone knows its WINTER, and it’s time to make sure you have what you need just in case!
I am as much concerned for your physical safety as I am about how you drive truck.
Increase your following distance when the roads are wet, or its dark or foggy. The professional driver will keep at least 6 seconds behind the vehicle in front of you, however when conditions change for the worse consider increasing that to 9-12 seconds.
The more maneuvering, and stopping distance you have the more time you have to safely react to any situation.
Other drivers are not watching out for you, but you need to watch out for them!!
