Fleet Safety Tip of the Week

September 07, 2010

This week's tip comes from the North Carolina Driver's Handbook. You may want to pass this along to your fleet drivers as a friendly reminder.

When you approach a vehicle towing a trailer: 

  • Watch for any sway or possible hazards, such as crosswinds or slippery curves
  • Be aware that sudden braking might cause the trailer to jackknife
  • Use extreme caution while passing a trailer and the towing vehicle -- it may take you a half mile of clear roadway to safely pass.
