Driver Safety Tips – October

Road Trip Tips of the Month

Fall is finally here!  Enjoy the cooler weather, and don’t forget the following:

  • Pull over to a safe location before answering calls or making changes to the navigation.
  • Scan 4-6 seconds ahead while driving and to check mirrors every 10 seconds; your surroundings can change in an instant.
  • Be aware of suspicious vehicles or pedestrians during routes.
  • Turn off vehicle, remove keys and lock all doors when delivering packages to customers. Drivers must secure their vehicle every time they exit for a delivery for their safety and to prevent theft of delivery vehicles.
  • Use personal protective equipment such as gloves and reflective vests while at the station and making deliveries.

As always, thank you for what you do…your hard work is appreciated!
