Safety Tip: Back-to-School Driving Advice

Back to School Safety
 

It’s back-to-school season again, so here are some timely tips from the National Safety Council that you can share with fleet drivers as a friendly reminder.

Sharing the Road with Young Pedestrians

According to research by the National Safety Council, most of the children who lose their lives in bus-related incidents are four to seven years old, and they’re walking. They are hit by the bus, or by a motorist illegally passing a stopped bus.

Here are some precautions drivers can take to help keep children safe:

Don’t block the crosswalk when stopped at a red light or waiting to make a turn, forcing pedestrians to go around you. This could put them in the path of moving traffic.
In a school zone when flashers are blinking, stop and yield to pedestrians crossing the crosswalk or intersection.
Always stop for a school patrol officer or crossing guard holding up a stop sign.
Take extra care to look out for children in school zones, near playgrounds and parks, and in all residential areas.
Don’t honk or rev your engine to scare a pedestrian, even if you have the right of way.
Never pass a vehicle stopped for pedestrians.
Always use extreme caution to avoid striking pedestrians wherever they may be, no matter who has the right of way.

Sharing the Road with School Buses

If you’re driving behind a bus, allow a greater following distance than if you were driving behind a car. It will give you more time to stop once the yellow lights start flashing. It is illegal in all 50 states to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children.

Never pass a bus from behind — or from either direction if you’re on an undivided road — if […]

Federal Goverment move to limit speeds of trucks, buses

Federal Goverment Pushing for Speed Limiters on Nation’s Trucks
Anthony Foxx, the U.S. Transportation secretary, has announced a proposal that, if approved, would see the nation’s heavy-duty commercial trucks equipped with devices that limit their speeds on U.S. roadways.

The proposed law, initiated by DOT’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), would require these devices be set to a maximum speed, claiming it would be a safety measure that could save lives and more than $1 billion in fuel costs each year.

“There are significant safety benefits to this proposed rulemaking,” Foxx said. “In addition to saving lives, the projected fuel and emissions savings make this proposal a win for safety, energy conservation and our environment.”

The department’s proposal would establish safety standards requiring all newly manufactured U.S. trucks, buses, and multipurpose passenger vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating more than 26,000 pounds to come equipped with speed limiting devices. The proposal discusses the benefits of setting the maximum speed at 60, 65, and 68 miles per hour, but the agencies will consider other speeds based on public input.

Meanwhile, the American Trucking Associations (ATA) hailed the proposal to electronically limit the maximum speeds of new trucks as a potential step forward for safety.

Bentley Truck Services Visits the New Isuzu Circle of Excellence Complex

Director of Sales and Marketing for Bentley Truck Services, Joe Campbell, Offers Insight Into the New Isuzu Facility Called the Center of Excellence:

On Wednesday July 27, 2016, Isuzu Commercial Truck of America opened their new complex in Pittston, PA. I was able to tour the facility along with other Isuzu dealers from the Northeast region. This complex is comprised of a parts distribution center, a training center, and a technical assistance facility. The complex is being called the Center of Excellence. It is designed to put three major functions supporting dealerships and customers in the Northeast region under one roof. The area was selected by Isuzu because the Northeast Region is home to one of the highest concentrations of US Isuzu dealerships, Isuzu commercial trucks in operation, and the company’s annual parts sales.
The parts center is 100,000 Square feet. Additionally, Isuzu is currently stocking $8 million of parts inventory here. From what I witnessed, there is room for expanding this inventory as the truck population in this region continues to grow. All the equipment is state of the art, the layout was highly influenced for improving efficiency and aligning functionality to the facility. Parts order fulfillment is a highly labor intensive operation but the technology and layout are making it a very efficient operation. I was also impressed with the energy saving lighting used and the motion sensing lights throughout the warehouse.

The training and technical assistance area comprises another 30,000 Sq. ft of in the complex. The training center is offering classes for technicians, parts personnel, sales representatives and customer satisfaction personnel. It is obvious as you walk the service training area the commitment to hands on training for service personnel is here, and the attention to detail was a goal in designing this operation.
The area has room to house 12 full size […]
