Developing a Driver Safety Strategy

Q. I am a small business owner; we have seven Sprinter vans in our fleet that are used to deliver product. A few months ago I started a safety training program for our drivers – we talk about safety almost every day before they leave our terminal. Unfortunately I have had two of my drivers make terrible decisions in the last couple of weeks; each one was involved in an accident. There are some variables to the wrecks – weather conditions, delivery time frames and one employee had only been on the job for a couple of months – but I cannot continue to have my guys involved in accidents.

What more can I do to make sure they drive better?

A Cloud of Dust!

Q. Just a few days ago I was traveling home after a long day at work. Within two miles of my home I hit a large deer. To be honest, I didn’t see the deer until it was right in front of my car. Within a matter of a few seconds, I had hit the deer, my airbag deployed and my kids were crying, a very scary situation. Thankfully we were wearing seatbelts and my youngest son was in his car seat.

My question is, after hitting the deer and making sure my kids were ok, and making sure I was alright, I noticed a cloud of dust in the vehicle, is that normal?
