Most of us remember that day in junior or senior year of high school that we were finally eligible to take drivers ed and it meant we would be able to drive a whole year before te rest of our friends. Yes, we were the cool ones.
Since that day, we probably hadn’t given much thought about driver education or safety. Then along comes the CDL and a new written test and road test with a whole new set of rules. So, we study and train and we pass and that’s that. Right? Not so fast.
As Commercial Drivers, Fleet Operators, or Fleet Owners there are many aspects of education and safety that quite often, go untouched.
In the coming weeks, I will address these issues and pin point some of the reasons, I think, that a driver’s education is never really completed.
Pre-trip inspections, defensive driving, professional appearance, how we communicate with customers, employers and most importantly, Roadside Inspectors.
In my opinion, these all add up to how we represent ourselves and our industry.
