Cold Weather Tire Pressure

Q. In our part of the country, just a few days ago we experienced our first cold weather. Every year when this happens, I remind our drivers to be sure and check the tire pressure on their vehicles.

Inevitably, I will get a call from a driver and questioned as to why their tires leak so much air in cooler weather…could you help me answer this question for my drivers.

Safe Following Distances

Q. In a recent meeting with my drivers, I asked them what their biggest challenge was for that particular day? The overwhelming answer, because of a light misty rain that was falling, was that the roads would be slick. I then asked the question, if the roads are slick what should be our priority today? After several minutes of discussion, the answer was to be aware of other drivers and create space between our vehicles and everyone else on the road. Although everyone seemed to be in agreement that this is the right thing to do, most were uncertain that it would be attainable; their thinking was that it would slow them down too much, and too many people would be “cutting them off” if they leave space in front of their vehicle.

I understand my drivers’ thinking and logic, and I shared with them that they only lose a few seconds each time they create space, but I don’t think I convinced them creating space was the best choice.

What else can I share with my drivers to get them to understand that leaving space between their vehicle and those around them is the correct way to drive.
