The fall has arrived and soon we will be in winter. It is this time of year that greater care is needed when traveling on our roadways. Often, as I travel on Pacific Northwest freeways, I watch Trucks go speeding by me without regard to the weather conditions. Rain conditions require defensive driver practices. Stopping distances are greatly increased and properly following distances most be maintained. Visibility is decreased by rain and darkness. Our hope is that Truck drivers are getting the necessary training, too often they are not.
Be defensive as you drive and protect yourself and your families.
