Fleet Safety Tip of the Week
Here is some simple advice, taken from the Colorado Driver Manual, on what to do in the event of a tire blowout. You may want to pass this along to your drivers as a friendly reminder.
- Hold the steering wheel tightly, and keep the vehicle going straight. Slow down gradually.
- Take your foot off the gas pedal and use the brakes lightly.
- Do not stop on the road if at all possible. Pull off the road in a safe place.
