Truck Driver Safety Tip: Buckle Up!


Posted by

This tip can be used for any kind of driver, but it’s just as important for a professional flatbed driver. It is critical that when you are driving, either short distances or on long trips, you should always wear your safety belt. It is also critical that if you have a passenger, he/she should buckle up as well. In case of a sudden stop or crash, a safety belt will keep you secured to the seat, helping prevent injury or death that may occur from you being thrown from your seat into the steering wheel, dash, or windshield. From 2011 data, NHTSA reported that 60 percent of all passengers killed in traffic crashes were unrestrained.
