On any given day the job of a truck driver is dangerous and demanding, but essential to meet the needs of many. With hurricane season officially starting, that demand skyrockets as the threat of natural disasters become frequent to Dallas residents. At Massey Towing and Truck Service, we understand how daunting hauling oversized freight can be. Our top priority is the safety of our drivers and your freight.
Hurricanes pose a great threat to many on the road, especially drivers of heavy-duty goods and materials. It’s important to slow down and steer clear of hydroplaning because no freight is worth risking your well-being or others.
Driving During Hurricane Season: Slow Down
Normally, heavy-towing drivers should always be cautious when turning on ramps and corners because of the size of their haul. But when hurricane season starts, it’s critical for drivers to drive slower than usual because of the additional weather changes a hurricane brings, like heavy rain and high winds.
These hurricane-specific weather conditions on their own can cause enough issues for a tractor trailer and many dangerous scenarios could occur. Adding ramps and corners into the mix and heavy hauling during hurricane season just became that much more dangerous. Never assume anything about hurricane weather conditions and slow down if you find yourself driving through one. When the winds are too high, it’s important to pull over when you can and wait until it’s safe to start driving again. Massey Towing and Truck Service specializes in oversize hauling, and while it’s important to meet demands during hurricane season, it’s also important to ensure the safety of our drivers and others. It is crucial that everyone arrives at their destinations safely.
Steer Clear of Hydroplaning
Hydroplaning under any circumstance is hazardous to all parties involved, regardless of weather conditions. But driving during hurricane season with a crane or construction supplies quadruples that level of danger. Our drivers constantly check the Department of Transportation for information on the current weather and road conditions, to stay informed on their journey.
Hurricanes can quickly change their direction of travel and it’s vital to remain up to date with that information. The weight and height of heavy hauling trucks might make it seem as if it’s easier to navigate flooded roads. But the truth is you never know what lies underneath and if drivers go too fast, they could end up in a very dangerous situation. So always slow down and steer clear of hydroplaning.
