Highway vehicle and trailer safety

Many accidents result prior to even getting the snow cat on the snow. Make sure that trucks and trailers are DOT compliant and proper safety checks are completed before heading out. Ensure that proper safety equipment such as wheel chocks, fire extinguishers, flares and cones are present and in good order. It is amazing how some of the smaller items such as a balanced load and proper tire pressure will greatly affect handling in snow and ice conditions, thus decreasing the chance of serious accidents.

Safe Travels!
