Safe Driving
  • Be prepared, drive for conditions, stay safe this winter

    Scraping ice of the windscreen before the journey into work is becoming a regular occurrence, and as the weather turns colder and roads get icier, safety is even more paramount. “The recent time change means for most people it’s dark when they come into work and then again when they leave,” said Tech. Sgt. José Martinez, 100th Air Refueling Wing occupational safety manager. “It creates an issue with being able to see, especially when being blinded by the headlights of other vehicles, or when it’s foggy. Another problem is the rain; roads become slippery and when mud also gets all over the road, it makes the conditions more hazardous, because it could cause someone to slide off the road.”
