Fleet Safety Tip of the Week

June 8, 2011

This week's advice, taken from the Arizona Driver License Manual and Customer Service Guide, concerns the false sense of security that can accompany driving the open road. You may want to pass this along to your fleet drivers as a friendly reminder.

Driving on empty rural highways can be just as dangerous as driving in heavy city traffic. It is easy to relax your attention and suddenly come upon a dangerous surprise. Animals in the road, slow-moving farm equipment just over the crest of a hill or a low spot covered with water are not unusual hazards in rural driving. Stay alert, watch for warning signs, and slow down when approaching curves or hills that block your view of the roadway ahead.
