Avoiding Driver Complacency

Q. Before asking my question, I want to thank you for the information we receive each month through this newsletter. I like the way that the information is delivered; quick and concise with substance. I really like the safety challenges that are in the newsletter.

I deliver product for a company and drive every day. I consider myself an excellent driver – no wrecks, no speeding tickets and I try to be a defensive driver. My question is, what should I be doing as a mature and seasoned driver to get better? Like I stated, I know how to drive and do a pretty good job at it, but sometimes I wonder if I am getting a little bit complacent.

Crisscrossing Trailer Safety Chains

Q. I have been a long time subscriber to The Driver Advantage e-newsletter, and as a Fleet Manager I try to always stay informed about what is happening in our industry. In your safety tip video on trailer safety last month, I picked up on something that a lot of our drivers do not do: crisscross trailer safety chains.

This technique makes sense to me, and I plan on implementing a policy to cover it. As always, there will be some resistance; do you have any background information I can share with our drivers that will help me get this policy in place? When we implement a policy, I like to have good reasoning behind it.
