Truckers are on the road more than almost anybody else, so they know the dangers of winter driving well. However, there are some tips for remaining safe during winter’s occasionally dangerous storms. For example, if you’re looking for ice, remember that the presence of ice on your windshield indicates a potential for ice on the road. Although roads usually freeze at a colder temperature, not all parts of the road will freeze evenly, so some parts will begin to ice over sooner than others.
Also, remember that just because you can see spray coming from the back tires of the vehicles in front of you does not mean that there are not still slick spots on the road, and one patch of ice is sometimes just as harmful as an evenly coated street, so if the temperature is below freezing, use caution while driving. No load is worth risking your life for.
