Our objective at Canadian Pro Drivers is to help to ensure that drivers arrive home safely at the end of each day. Here is a safety tip for you to share with your drivers and fleets.
As the weather starts to warm up, drivers are going to encounter small and large animals crossing our paths at inopportune times. In urban areas, drivers need to check for animals under parked vehicles (grounding) and scan neighbouring driveways and lawns for our furry friends. In rural areas, drivers also need to scan tree lines and fields for possible large animals that could jump out in front of vehicles. Animals are more active at dusk and dawn and if you are driving during these times of day, slow down as speed only adds to more damage and/or injury. It is important to be aware of your surroundings, continuous scan your mirrors and look ahead 20-25 seconds while driving.
April is usually the month where drivers and fleet companies take part in the tiring changing ritual. Keep in mind that with the fluctuating temperatures, changing weather patterns and the region you are in, it may be a good idea to postpone switching your tires. You may need to adjust your driving as it does take longer to stop in warmer weather with winter tires on the vehicle.

As southern Ontario saw lots of ice pellets, freezing rain and rain over the weekend, make sure you clear all the ice from your vehicle including the roof. When that ice flies off in traffic, it could cause damage to people or other vehicles. Drive safely.
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
