Making sure our drivers are safe at NTB is something that we can’t stress enough. One of the best ways to ensure less accidents on the road is a simple and easy precaution: always watch your mirrors.

This may seem like a common sense tip, but it is something many truck drivers tend to miss because the roads may be clear that day. The problem is that things can happen in a flash on the road. While the roads may seem clear for an hour, at any given moment, things can change.

Watching your mirrors, despite how clear the roads may seem, should be one of your top priorities. Not only will this help predict what the cars around you will do, but it can save your life if something pops up out of nowhere.

It is important to remember that things do not just happen in front of you or in your direct line of vision, which is why you need a balance between watching your windshield and watching your mirrors. If you are aware of your surroundings at all times, you can be fully prepared for anything coming your way.

We want our drivers to have an enjoyable experience on the road and with that comes safety. Remember to watch your mirrors on your next drive!
