Ever wonder what would happen if we did not have accurate records for certain things in our lives. Say, for example, you go to see the doctor or the dentist and they did not have any record of your medical history or any record of what took place during your last visit. The same could be said for your home or car. Service work was done but there were no records kept. Imagine driving with no license, registration, or proof of insurance. Although not as critical as these scenarios, the same does hold true when talking about keeping accurate records of your Onspot chain system.
Whether driving a small go-kart or a heavy hauler, you must have traction to move forward. Actually, you can’t even walk without it. Traction is a commonly used word and many believe it’s just another word for friction. But is it really? Let’s have a closer look at friction and traction – what it is and why it’s so fundamental to safe driving.
We tend to do as we always do. Many things in everyday life become habits, and we don’t reflect on them. At least until something goes wrong, or we get some other trigger to change our routines. To most people, driving is one such habit, irrespective of if we’re professional drivers or just drive the family car.
Think back to when you left driving school. Your mind was full of rules and regulations, dos and don’ts and a lot of advice from teachers and experienced drivers. But today, do you really remember literally all traffic signs and rules? I don’t…
Knowledge and advice we don’t use or are reminded of fade away over time and we forget. This is naturally human.
When the going gets tough and harsh winter conditions strike, the interaction between the driver and the vehicle is put to the test.
In these tough conditions, good driving performance is more than relying upon on the vehicle or it's saftey systems. Rather, it’s about instantly adapting your mindset and behavior in order to do the job effectively – in the safest way possible.
