Safety on the Roads this Summer Season

Trucker Safety TipsOver the past several weeks, tractor trailers have been in the evening news. Sadly, the reasoning behind their evening debuts isn’t for something positive, but due to accidents involving tractor trailers. On April 15th, around 10:30pm, a tractor trailer was reported overturned on the ramp heading from Interstate 895 going to Route 295 in Lansdowne. The driver was retrieved from the truck and flown to Shock Trauma, but there has been no word on the driver’s condition. Then, just yesterday, a tractor trailer crash took place on Interstate 95 northbound. The accident took place in Arbutus near the Howard/Baltimore County line and caused traffic jams within the area.

The latest crash unfortunately involved a pedestrian car, and more crashes will most likely take place with the summer season approaching. To prevent these types of accidents, it’s important for both truck drivers and pedestrian drivers to be aware and conscious of each other. Here are some safety tips for truckers this summer season:

  1. Inspect your truck before each drive
  2. Zero tolerance for distractions
  3. Stay well rested
  4. Keep your lane of travel to a single lane when possible
  5. Be aware of civilian drivers
