Not only do we here at NWTC want to make sure that your semis, loaders, dump trucks and everything else we offer are running in perfect condition, but we wanted to share some safe driving tips to ensure that our customers and their employees take care out on the roads.
Distance Between Vehicles is Key
There are many unexpected obstacles that can crop up while out on the road. Poor weather, road work and lane closures, accidents and more can all cause traffic to behave differently than expected. Maintaining a safe driving distance will ensure that you can handle any unexpected traffic detours easily. You can also enquire with our staff today about the variety of options our vehicles are equipped with to help with safe driving such as brake assistance, object alerts and more.
Get Your Maintenance Done Before You Need It
Preventative maintenance is critical to upkeeping a safe vehicle. Without proper maintenance and inspections on a timely schedule, you’re asking for a recipe that leads to breakdowns and unsafe driving conditions. Here at NWTC we are committed to providing you with the highest quality of service to keep your vehicles in top condition.
One of the biggest safety concerns on the road is exhaustion, both physical and mental. Long periods of driving can tire your body and mind, leading to lower reaction times, less awareness and overall unsafe driving conditions. For those long stretches on the road make sure that your employees are prepared and comfortable - New West Truck Centres offers top of the line vehicles built with your drivers in mind.
We get it - today’s world is always online, always connected and always within reach of a cell phone. Text messages, phone calls, music, social media and so much more is at the tip of our fingers at any moment. Distracted driving is now the leading cause of accidents on the road so keep your employees safe with dashboards that clearly display your information without distracting from the road ahead.
