Road Courtesy is a simple concept, but along with driver education, awareness of sharing the roads and increasing your safety, these things are often not given enough consideration.

Many people are in a hurry for whatever reason, be it essential or otherwise and the speed of life has changed, as have the vehicles we drive. A driver’s attitude can be the biggest danger, to themselves and others.

As professional drivers, we see many near misses and acts of impatience every day on the road. No one is perfect, we are all human, but as professionals, we aim to eventually get home safely to our families, most likely you do as well.

People often risk their lives and that of their passengers/families to pass a truck or get in front of one to save a few minutes, if that. Is it worth it? Often it’s a significant risk for a small gain. Cars and light vehicles have far greater opportunities to pass a truck than the other way around.
