Safe practices & procedures for Towing

Any of the drivers that i have trained will tell you my favorite saying is "minimize your exposure to risk". This term encompasses so much more than just trying to be safe or working safer. It is a philosophy that when employed daily, will help every driver with the ultimate goal of finishing the day/night shift and going home safe. A few tips to minimizing your exposure to risk are as follows.

On the freeway, wear your class 3 safety vest. Not only is it the law, it is easy to do. Slip it on and be visible.

Highway/Freeway Safety

Safety tip. If you do break down on a highway or freeway, pull to the right shoulder (if possible) safely & remain in your vehicle with your seatbelt on until help arrives. Once the help is there, if you have to get out of your vehicle, remain on the off traffic side of the vehicle & do not EVER stand between the vehicles. ALSO, try to keep your view towards oncoming traffic if at all possible. Traffic moves pretty fast on both Highway 101 and Highway 12 through Santa Rosa so be safe out there Sonoma County.

Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance on your vehicle can go a long way to minimizing your chances of having a breakdown. Talk to your mechanic during your next visit and let them know your driving habits, when you are planning a road trip or if they see anything that COULD be a problem down the road. A little work now can avoid a lot of work later and hopefully save you some hard earned money.
