Swing Transport: Happy Fourth of July

forth of julyHave a Happy and Safe Independence Day!

The Management at Swing Transport wishes you and your family a very Happy and Safe Fourth of July Holiday. 

Most importantly, when you return to work please return rested.  Most serious truck driving accidents occur after the driver has had prolonged time off.  Please return to work rested and alert.

From the NHTSA:

Help reduce accident fatalities this July 4 with these safe driving tips for holiday weekends:

  • Do not drive intoxicated! Of the 400+ fatalities over the Fourth of July weekend every year, 40%-60% are due to the driver having a blood-alcohol level above the limit. Secure a designated driver—a trustworthy friend or family member who will not drink a drop of alcohol before driving home from the fireworks and festivities.
  • Make sure to get sleep over the holiday weekend. The second cause of driving fatalities is drowsiness. Drivers party so hard they simply fall asleep at the wheel. Easy solution? Find a safe place and pull over once you feel drowsiness overtaking you. It’s perfectly legal to do so, and can save your family/friends’ lives.
  • Recognize and avoid impaired drivers. If you do happen to spot a vehicle obviously endangering others (swerving, switching lanes erratically, etc.) maintain a safe following distance and don’t attempt to pass them. When safe, have another passenger in your vehicle report the car (via drivers’ license number) by calling your local non-emergency police line.
  • BUCKLE UP! It’s not always you that can cause fatalities on the road—other drivers might not be so smart (see tip above). Ensuring your entire car is safely buckled will increase your chances of a safe drive home at the end of the long weekend.
  • Keep travel plans flexible. Don’t set in stone times to travel to or from parties, fireworks, family members’ homes and other festivities—allow yourself an extra few hours (or even a day in the case your designated driver doesn’t keep his word). Flexibility in your plans means you can spend the night at whatever party/family member’s BBQ you attended. This will leave everyone fresh, sober and ready to hit the road in the morning—safely.
