Fleet Safety Tip of the Week

December 01, 2010

This week's advice, taken from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation's Motorists' Handbook, concerns what actions a driver should take right after a tire blowout. You may want to pass this along to your fleet drivers as a friendly reminder. 

If a tire suddenly goes flat: 

  • Tightly hold the steering wheel and keep the vehicle going straight.
  • Gradually slow down. Take your foot off the gas pedal but don't apply the brakes until the vehicle has almost stopped.
  • Do not stop on the road if at all possible. Pull off the road in a safe place.
