As we approach the winter season, Master’s would like to remind everyone to be extra cautious when driving a shuttle, bus, or motor coach. Since driving conditions can change suddenly, we recommend having some of the following items on board:
- Warm Gloves
- Warm Coat
- Trash Bags
- Ice Scrapper
Another element of being prepared for your winter excursions is to perform a thorough pre-trip inspection of the vehicle you will be driving or traveling in. One of the most important parts of the inspection is the tires. Under normal conditions, this would be less of a focus but in wintery conditions, the tires may have reduced traction on the road due to ice and water. For this reason, it is important to check the following:
- Check tire pressure
- Tires have good tread and are not more than 50% worn
- Ensure lug nuts are tight
- Have chains available
Remember to give yourself extra room between vehicles and extra time to stop. Understanding how to react when hydroplaning or in blizzard-like conditions is equally important.
