Our objective at Canadian Pro Drivers is to help to ensure that drivers arrive home safely at the end of each day.
Please share this safety tip with your drivers and fleets.
As summer holidays are upon us, many of us will be heading out on vacation and our vehicles will be packed with tents, BBQ’s, bicycles, coolers etc. It is the driver’s responsibility to ensure that all items are properly secured in/on the vehicles and/or trailers.
As professional drivers, we must be aware that others on the roads may not have fully complied with load securement rules. To avoid an unfortunate incident on your travels here are some guidelines to help you do your part of road safety during summer travel:
• Add extra following distance so that you have enough time to react in the event that something becomes loose with their load • Avoid driving in their blind spot as they may have a limited view with a packed vehicle blocking their mirrors and windows • If you are going to pass a vehicle with a suspect load, try to overtake that vehicle with as much space as possible since you never know when something may fly off the vehicle • Give loaded vehicles extra space as they may make wide turns or back up
At Canadian Pro Drivers, we continue to focus on Driving Your Business Safely.

If you are from the London area and are interested in becoming a driving instructor, there will be a full-time course offered through Fanshawe College from July 30 - Aug 25. Register directly with Fanshawe. If you have any questions, please give us a call! Hope to see you there.
The course made me more aware of a number of things such as space management, mirror adjustment, circle checks, blind spots/blind areas and visual interpretations/distractions. I found the pylon parking to be most beneficial. The instructors were very knowledgeable and friendly. I certainly would recommend this course to other drivers
