HARD BRAKING

After a review of the hard braking data the most common occurrence seems to be at stop signs and stop lights.

Hard braking typically results in rear end collisions or shifting cargo. As a professional driver you must be prepared to stop at all traffic control devices without excessive braking. Utilizing your professional skills and defensive driving techniques will enhance the safety of the motoring public and more importantly returning safely to your family.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS

The U.S. Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion recommends that you consume at least two servings of fruit and three servings of vegetables each day. Although this varies by age, sex and level of physical activity, it is a good recommendation to live by to build a healthy dietary base.

 

One great way to add variety to your diet and to make sure you are eating enough fruits and vegetables is to look for seasonal produce. Additionally, choosing in-season produce can help save you money, as the abundance of the fruit or vegetable typically makes it less expensive.
