Horsham, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/26/2019 -- As one of the industry's premier providers of CDL driving jobs throughout Pennsylvania, TQM Logistics is renowned for the resources, advice, news, and information they offer commercial truck drivers. Now, the company is advising on the various distractions, both inside and outside the cab, that can create dangerous conditions for truck drivers.
For instance, anything from scenery to buildings, billboards, and other external elements can take attention away from the road. It's essential that drivers remember that anything that takes their eyes away from driving, even momentarily, can be a distraction and cause slower reaction time in the case of an unexpected event on the road.
Additionally, there are even more potential distractions inside the cab that can be dangerous for drivers. One of the most obvious ones includes using cellphones to text or make calls. Because they typically require at least one hand to operate, it means that a driver will have their eyes diverted away from driving and one hand off the steering wheel. Not only that, but being engaged in a conversation makes them mentally distracted as well.
In addition to the use of a cell phone, there are numerous other distractions inside the cab that can be distracting and take attention away from the road and driving. Although they might not immediately come to mind, things like dispatching devices, maps and notetaking, and even eating and drinking can all cause distracted driving because they require both physical and mental attention.
Even internal distractions, like not getting enough sleep, concerns over making load times, and even issues with personal or family life can divert attention away from driving and create unsafe conditions on the road. Maintaining focus is crucial for not only the drivers' safety, but the safety of those around them as well.
