For many, New Year's Eve is a night of celebration. Some will celebrate a new beginning. A chance to start over and do things in a new way. Others will celebrate letting go. Freeing themselves of those things they've held on to, either emotionally or physically, for too long. It is a night for forgiveness, apologies, resolutions and new opportunities. Ultimately, the coming of a new year marks a changing point for people all across the world.
Winter is here and for many areas, it has brought plenty of ice with it. While it can be a lot of fun to go ice skating, or even just slipping and sliding around the driveway with the kids, it is not so much fun when your truck is slipping and sliding on the road. When icy road conditions abound, it seems prudent to talk about the potential for jackknifing and what you can do to prevent it.
Last year, we shared an infographic with some tips for driving on ice and snow. Now that winter has officially reared it's head and the snow storms are beginning to fill in the forecasts we thought it would be a good time to share those tips again.
Today, trucks are a normal part of everyday life. They are so common that nobody really stops to think about it when they see a truck pulling in to the local convenience store, shopping center, or warehouse.
