Passing Other Vehicles Safely!

Q. Our company is having a Safety Stand Down Day, creating awareness for driver safety on and off the job. One area that I believe could be of interest to our workforce is passing other vehicles on the road; our location is such that most of our workers travel two lane roads each morning and afternoon. Unfortunately they have short stretches of road to make a pass on another vehicle… what precautions should they take before making a pass?

Stopped At Traffic Lights!

Q. While conducting a “ride-along” this past month, one of my team members continuously pulled up on vehicles stopped at traffic lights. This person is a great guy, talks about how good of a driver he is (and he is a good driver per his record), however he scared me with his late braking and constant tailgating at traffic lights.

Following the ride-along, I talked to the driver about the stopping distance at traffic lights and late braking. I am not real sure he understands the concepts of space management when driving, could you provide some points that may help get the message across when stopping at lights.
