A Parking Lot Could be the Most Dangerous Place on Your Route!


The first parking lot in the world was created in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Parking lots are especially dangerous for drivers making deliveries or just stopping for lunch. The exposure exists for a vehicle accident as well as being involved in an accident as a pedestrian.

Prescription Drugs and Commercial Motor Vehicle Operation Do Not Always Mix


Over the recent years we have seen numerous high profile deaths occur using prescription drugs. For example we have seen an actor who died of an overdose of prescription drugs and a doctor on
trial for the death of a famous musician who died as a result of an overdose of a prescribed medication.


As managers of commercial drivers we need to be aware of the medications that our drivers are taking as they may have a direct effect on their driving skills and operation of a CMV. Prescription
medications have increased substantially in the last 50 years.

Warm Weather is Coming

The first day of spring is March 20th! In the last week I have personally observed two vehicles run traffic control devices. Take time now to meet with your drivers and discuss the upcoming days ahead as the temperature will increase and we will see the sun more often. For most of us, it has been a long winter. Caution your drivers on complacency and inattention. As a safety director, it seemed that my worst accidents occurred during the months of March and April. My drivers had spent the entire winter, being alert for changing road conditions, traffic and weather. When the road conditions improved and the weather was extremely enjoyable, it was then that they let down their guard down an accident occurred. Take the time now to caution drivers and reinforce good defensive driving behavior.

Is Your Company Prepared in the Event of an Accident?

Today more than ever companies that operate commercial motor vehicles need to prepare in advance for an accident that one of their vehicles may have. Depending on the severity of the accident, just the involvement is enough to throw the thought process of most drivers and supervisors into array. Companies need to have a clear and direct plan in place that will be implemented when an accident occurs. This plan needs to be flexible and can be activated no matter what time of the day or night. When an accident occurs the company has a number of immediate items that need to be addressed
