Cruise Control Can Help – Tech Tip Tuesday

Here’s some helpful info about cruise control for your fleet drivers

FROM THE DESK OF THE SAFETY PROFESSIONAL ON FLEETRESPONSE.COM WEBSITE: CRUISE CONTROL

Cruise control can be beneficial when used under proper road, climate and traffic conditions. It enables you to maintain a safe speed without keeping your foot on the gas pedal thereby reducing driver fatigue during a long trip. While there are benefits it is important to know when it is appropriate to use the system.

In order to be a safer driver, only use cruise control when:

-The pavement is dry (no rain, sleet, ice or snow
-The road is straight and clear ahead (not under repair, no barricades or posted detours
-Traffic is light and all lanes are moving at reasonable speeds

It is not safe to use cruise control when:

-You cannot drive at a steady speed
-You are driving on winding roads or in heavy traffic
-The road is under repair or construction with obstacles or barricades on the roadway
-You do not have clear visibility of the road ahead
-There is heavy vehicle or pedestrian traffic or signal control lights at frequent intervals
