Your safety thought for this morning is…

While most people know to slow down in the rain, for the next several days, we’ll be looking at some other tips that will help keep you, and those who share the road with you, from becoming a statistic.

 

  • Give a truck or bus extra distance. Their extra-large tires can create enough spray to block your vision completely. Avoid passing one, but if you must pass, do it as quickly as safety allows.
  • Be aware of hydroplaning. This is where your vehicle travels on top of the water and has NO or very little contact with the ground. Your traction is reduced significantly. To safely get out of a hydroplaning situation let off the gas and steer straight or slightly in the direction you must go. Do not make sudden motions and remain calm. 
  • Don't use cruise control. If you hydroplane, there's the chance your car could actually accelerate. Cruise control also allows drivers to be less vigilant and to take their foot away from the pedals — not a great idea when reaction time is so important.
IRWIN Four Aces Safety Culture The Ace of the Month for February is…
AWARENESS
Remaining perceptive of the activities and environment around you at all times, and not slipping into complacency, is key toward maintaining a heightened state of AWARENESS to identify those hidden hazards before they get you.
