  Fleet Safety Video Tip: Driving in High Winds

   

March is typically a windy month, posing a variety of challenges for drivers. In windy conditions, it’s important to maintain safe distances from other vehicles, particularly big commercial trucks, buses, RVs and trailers being towed. With a sudden gust of wind, these vehicles can quickly swing out and collide with your vehicle. What’s more, they are more prone to tipping over in high winds.

Of course, bicyclists and motorcycle riders can easily lose control as well.

Keep in mind that your own vehicle is more susceptible to high winds throwing it off-course on open stretches of road, when passing bridges or gaps in high shrubbery, or when passing a big truck, according to the Automobile Association. Steer with both hands on the wheel and adjust your speed.
