How School Being In Affects Your Business

Across the nation, backbacks are being packed, lunches are being made and students are trickling in…summer is over.  This also means that the roads are going to be filled with young and inexperienced drivers-often talking on their cell phones or just not paying the attention of their surroundings as much as a more experienced driver may be.

If you have certain routes, you may see an influx of drivers or new vehicles along the way. Take this into consideration as your fuel usage may suffer waiting behind buses or just in general much more volume.

How To Mitigate The Effects With Fleet Tracking

Be Aware of Children Walking To and From School

Pay attention to areas around schools, especially, as they are often filled with children who have short attention spans, dart in and out of traffic, and do not necessarily follow the rules of the road. Be watchful and take it slow.

Ensure Your Maintenance Is up to Snuff .

This is the time of year when you most want blinkers, brakes, brake lights, headlights, and other mechanical parts of your fleet vehicles to operate at optimum efficiency. In addition to your other winterizing protocol it’s also wise to have a decent vehicle checkup before everyone else is in a mad dash to winterize. Get in ahead of the crowd and rest assure that your vehicles are safe and sound.

Eliminate Distractions

Not paying attention while driving is not a good plan no matter what time of the year it may be.  Remember your business name is the one that’s associated with anything that happens in those vehicles.
