You might be the kings of the highways and rulers of the lanes, but when winter strikes, you and your truck will be sitting in a garage if you don’t prepare properly.
That’s right, the big rigs of the roadways can be stopped by the coldest and lowest of temperatures.
So before you go hauling another big load this season, check out these tips below to make sure you’ve covered all of the necessary bases for winterizing your heavy-duty diesel.
Vow to Drive Safely This Winter
1. Be cautious when weather becomes bad, such as rain, sleet, snow, fog, or wind. This can limit your ability to slow down and stop, as well as traction for turning and remaining in your lane on the road.
3. Sun protection is a must. Snow and sun do not mix well and can cause deceptive winter glares to occur while you’re driving. Use sun sleeves, window covers, and sunglasses to help reduce the occurrence of a glare.
