Horsham, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/24/2019 -- As the top-rated provider of CDL driving jobs across the country, TQM Logistics understands the value of safety when it comes to protecting their drivers when they're on the road. It's exactly why they provide industry news and other information for their drivers. Now, the organization is offering tips on a crucial part of CDL driving — cornering.
There are major two components to cornering: area and momentum. If a truck is approaching a turn too fast, their trailer will gain momentum and push them through the turn. This can be especially troublesome in places where there isn't much area to turn.
One of the primary causes of cornering issues is the speed at which turns are taken. Since many CDL accidents are a result of improper speed and cornering, this is a skill which is vital to master, and going slow is critical to successful cornering. This means slowing down the vehicle while it's still straight, before beginning the turn.
In instances where a highway exit is about to be missed, it's inadvisable to attempt to swing and catch the exit. While it may be tempting, this is a risky move and should be avoided at all costs. Instead, TQM Logistics recommends that drivers go to the next exit and turn around slowly to return to their desired path.
The same rule applies in congested cities, especially on high-traffic streets. If a turn has been missed, simply go to the next available one and turn around. Making last minute cornering maneuvers endangers not only truckers, but drivers and pedestrians around them as well.
Regardless of weather or road conditions, truckers should always corner slowly and safely to avoid harm to their load, their vehicle, or themselves. For more information on safe corning, or for CDL job opportunities, call TQM Logistics today at 866-823-4519 or visit https://www.tqmlogistics.com/.
