On November 11, #CanadaRemembers
Driving in the winter can be very stressful and sometimes dangerous. Living in Canada, we are no stranger to these conditions. This means adjusting our driving approach and taking extra precautions to ensure everyone gets #SafelyHome. · Prepare

Remain vigilant. The weather may appear mild at the start of the day, but in just a few hours, be in the midst of a blizzard. Make sure you have the appropriate clothing, footwear, and learn your route ahead of time. · Slow Down

Typically, there are more collisions recorded during winter months. The main contributor is vehicle speed and road conditions. Reduce your speed, and this will give you more time to react in case of an emergency. · Increase Following Distance

Allow for more room between your vehicle and others on the road. You should always have enough space and stopping time between you and other vehicles, to move out of the way. · Hold Your Steering Wheel Firmly

Sudden sharp movements can quickly cause you to lose control of your vehicle. Stay steady through ruts in the road, heavy winds, or while on ice. · Brake and Accelerate Lightly

Try not to make any quick or sudden movements in poor weather. When you need to slow down quickly in slippery conditions, lightly pump your brakes. This reduces the chance of locking your tires and spinning out of control. · Use Extra Caution when Approaching Bridges

Elevated structures like bridges and highway overpasses often freeze first, and may not be treated with ice/snow melt materials (like salt or sand). ‘Black ice’ is especially common on bridges. · Watch for Black Ice 'Black ice' is a thin layer of transparent ice that forms when the temperature is around the freezing point. It may appear when the road is slightly wet, and it is difficult to see ahead of you on the road.

Early tomorrow morning (Sunday, November 3, 2019, at 02:00 am), we will turn our clocks back an hour, marking the end of Daylight Savings Time! As we celebrate this extra hour of sleep, let’s keep in mind the hazards this event can facilitate: • An increase of darkness while we make our way to and from the workplace. Drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians will experience decreased visibility. Be alert and aware of your surroundings. • As a pedestrian, ensure you are as visible as you possibly can be and pay close attention while crossing. High visibility is in fashion! • As a cyclist brave enough to endure the elements, ensure you are as visible as you possibly can be, wear a reflective jacket, helmet, and use lights and reflectors on your bike. • As a motorist, watch intersections and crosswalks carefully and slow down! Ensure all your lights, mirrors, and windshields are clean. Keep your windshield washer fluid and fuel tank full. • Always give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination.

Have a fantastic (and delicious!) Thanksgiving, from all of us at Diversified Transportation.
Slips, trips, and falls are the number one reason for an industrial injury in #Canada. Thousands of injuries causing disability and even death, occur each year as a result of these incidents. They can happen anywhere; at work or even in the comfort of your own home. 
Pay attention to your movements and surroundings. Here are some tips to help you stay aware: • Focus on where you’re going, what you’re doing, and what lies ahead.
• Expect the unexpected.
• Take responsibility for fixing, removing, or avoiding hazards in your path.
• Wear sturdy shoes with non-skid soles and flat heels.
• Avoid baggy or loose pants you could trip over.
• Walk, don’t run.
• Wipe your feet when you come in from rain or snow.
• Report or replace any burned out lights or inadequate lighting.
• Watch out for uneven walking surfaces.
• Keep your hands at your sides, not in your pockets, for balance.
• Don’t carry loads you can’t see over.
• Walk slowly on slippery surfaces. Use your cleats!
• Sit in chairs with all four legs on the floor.
• Make sure all wheels or casters are on the floor.
• Be always alert for obstructions in your path.

Back to School: Slow Down and Share the Road!

It’s never more important for drivers to slow down and pay attention than when kids are present- especially before and after school.

Sharing the Road with Young Pedestrians: • Don’t block the crosswalk when stopped at a red light or waiting to make a turn, forcing pedestrians to go around you; this could put them in the path of moving traffic.
• In a school zone when flashers are blinking, stop and yield to pedestrians crossing the crosswalk or intersection.
• Always stop for a school patrol officer or crossing guard holding up a stop sign.

Sharing the Road with School Buses: • If you’re driving behind a bus, allow a greater following distance than if you were driving behind a car.
• Never pass a bus from behind.
• If the yellow or red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended, traffic must stop.
• The area 10 feet around a school bus is the most dangerous for children; stop far enough back to allow them space to enter and exit the bus safely.

By exercising a little care and caution, drivers and pedestrians can co-exist safely in school zones. Get #SafelyHome this school year!
