Winter Driving Tips for Truck Drivers

https://greatcdltraining.com/blog/winter-driving-tips

1. Clear off all windows, mirrors, and exterior lights completely before driving..

2. Keep tires and brakes in good condition.

3. Maintain a sufficient following distance.

4. Plan your route.

5. Check cross-traffic prior to reaching and traveling through an intersection to help avoid collisions.

6. Do not drive if you feel fatigued.

7. Here’s a nifty tip: watch the tire spray. If there’s a lot of spray coming off others’ tires, the roads are wet. If there’s not as much spray but the roads look wet, take caution because they’re beginning to freeze. And if the roads look wet but you don’t see much spray, you’re on ice, so be careful.

8. Don’t push your truck or yourself to do more than you can!
