    I teach that when you pull off the road, due to poor viability, you should shut OFF you vehicle lights. This was, you are not to inviting other motorists, who are having trouble seeing, from following you and your lights.

    What makes matters worse is the operators who insist on engaging their hazard lights and continuing to drive on the road. Who started this practice?

    Good point Dave on the lights on or off option while pulled off to the side. WE've instructed on drivers to use their hazard lights and to get as far off as possible while still being safe not to go too far off road. As for driving with the hazards on, well that's just ridiculous as can be.

Avoid Repeating Past Inefficiencies: Build the Truck to Match Today’s Application

By Mike Antich
I asked one fleet manager how he spec’ed replacement trucks for his fleet application. He related that many years earlier an OEM rep spec’ed out his trucks and he has been using the same formula ever since. While this may work in some cases, specifications should be defined by today’s fleet application to ensure the replacement truck is designed to accommodate current operational requirements rather than trying to make your operation conform to trucks spec’ed for yesteryear’s requirements.
