Fleet Safety Video Tip: Driving in Icy Conditions

December 08, 2014

VIDEO: Driving in Icy Conditions

This is the time of year when roads that appear to be dry may actually be covered in ice. Freezing rain can make a road as slippery as a hockey rink.

That’s why fleet drivers need to slow down during freezing temperatures, particularly when approaching intersections, off-ramps, bridges or shady areas where black ice can easily form. Even if no snow or ice is visible, drivers can't let down their guard.

Maintaining or recovering traction in such conditions requires razor-sharp attention and quick responses. Here is a video, produced by the Michigan State Police, offering some driving tips for icy conditions.

To watch the video, click on the photo or link above. You may want to pass this along to your fleet drivers as a friendly reminder.

Remember, when road surfaces are as slick as a cartoon banana peel, very strange things can happen. The unthinkable can happen. Click here to watch a video on how a Chicago fleet vehicle slid off an icy bike trail and fell into Lake Michigan the day after Thanksgiving.
