Truck Driving Tips
Stay vigilant, and prepared, and remember to be a proactive driver. As a motorist, it is our responsibility to operate vehicles safely and in a sensible manner.
Aim high in steering – Staying alert. Steer and focus your attention high, so as to view the road as a whole and not just a few feet ahead.
The Big Picture – Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Having the whole picture means that you are doing your part to keep your vehicle as safe as possible while moving.
Keep Your Eyes Moving –Remain alert. Consistent eye movement prevents your body from entering the trance state, keeping you alert to every driving condition ahead of you.
Leave Yourself an Out – This means ensuring that other drivers do not box you in while selecting their lanes. Do not tailgate other vehicles too closely. Always anticipate other drivers’ moves.
Make Sure They See You – As a driver, make sure that other drivers can see you and anticipate your move.
