This week's advice, taken from the California Driver Handbook, addresses how to safely exit the freeway. You may want to pass this along to your fleet drivers as a friendly reminder. 

  • Change lanes one at a time, until you are in the proper lane to exit the freeway.
  • Signal your intention to exit for approximately five seconds.
  • Be sure you are at the proper speed for leaving the traffic lane -- not too fast (so you won't lose control) and not too slow (so the flow of traffic can still move freely).
