Bad Weather Driving Guide

Snow, Ice, Winds, Rain and Floods to name a few…

During bad weather, professional drivers face more challenges than other road users through increased demands on their own concentration and their vehicles.

Some of these are due to the size of the vehicles and factors such as braking distances that are affected by certain weather types.

Typically, planned delivery times and journey times remain the same all year round with drivers and vehicles required to perform the same duties whatever the driving conditions.

We know that high winds, ice and snow or driving rain make the operation of a large vehicle much more difficult.

Remember, whilst on the road, you the driver, are solely responsible for the safe operation of your vehicle, security of your load and delivery of goods to your destination.

By following the simple steps outlined in this Pocket Guide you can ensure your own safety and that of other road users.
