12 Winter Weather Driving Tips for Your FedEx Drivers

  If you drive for work, you don’t have the luxury of escaping the snow. Furthermore, as we speak, many parts of the country are experiencing snow and icy roads. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how bad the roads are. Unless they’re closed, you still have to make your deliveries, and it’s best to be prepared for these conditions in advance. Did you know that approximately 70 percent of the roads in the United States are located in snowy regions? A majority of these roads are driven by truckers, including shipping services. Snowy weather is responsible for 24 percent of weather-related vehicle crashes each year, attributing to 900 fatalities and more than 75,000 injuries. The danger is very real, particularly for large vehicles, like trucks, that have unique needs during the winter.
