Fleet Safety Tip of the Week

August 17, 2011

This week's tip, taken from the Iowa Driver's Manual, concerns driving conditions that make it dangerous to pass a vehicle on a two-lane road. You may want to pass this advice along to your fleet drivers as a friendly reminder.

Do not pass when:

  • Your vehicle is coming to the top of a hill
  • Your vehicle is going around a curve and your view along the highway is obstructed
  • Your vehicle is within 100 feet of a narrow bridge, viaduct or tunnel that has a sign posted to let you know it is there
  • Your vehicle is within 100 feet of an intersection or railroad crossing
  • Your vehicle must go off the pavement or onto the shoulder of the road in order to pass
  • There is a stopped school bus in your lane or the oncoming lane, or there is a school bus with its red or amber warning signal lights flashing or its stop arm out
  • Oncoming traffic is so close it would be dangerous to try to make it around the vehicle you are passing.
