Monday September 23, 2019 was officially the first day of autumn. It won’t be long before overnight temperatures in the northeast drop into the 30’s and begin to impact vehicle operating performance. The winter season will soon follow and bring us the annual snow, ice, and freezing rain that will make travelling on the highways an adventure.
Did you know that April is National Distracted Driver Awareness month? Every day at least nine Americans die and 100 are injured in crashes caused by distracted driving. Many things are to blame; cell phones, touch screens, the environment and technology all pose a threat to our safety while on the road. Distracted Driver Awareness month is in an effort to recognize all the dangers our truckers face on a day-to-day basis.
