California-based wholesale truck insurance agency analyzes highly dangerous scenarios drivers must face during this year’s unpredictable weather events.

Carlsbad, United States - February 14, 2018 /PressCable/ —

InsuranceTruck.com, a California-based “wholesale” truck insurance agency offering premium coverage for independent commercial agents/agencies and truck fleet owners, has been studying the effects on drivers who are struggling to transport cargo during this winter’s nationwide icy conditions. As winter 2018’s unpredictable wrath appears to be wreaking havoc on most of America’s roadways – dumping almost unheard-of amounts of ice, sleet, snow and icy rain in parts of the country that in the past never experienced such volumes – Insurance Truck representatives continue to stress why this is the most dangerous time of year for truck drivers.

“Not every driver will be facing driving conditions as seen on Ice Road Truckers, but even in areas where snow is a rare sight, preparation for unforeseen weather and driving conditions is key to survival,” states an Insurance Truck company spokesperson. “Experienced truck drivers always make the effort to prepare for winter weather driving by being ready to take action when the snow and ice hit hard; in determining that drivers are struggling to transport cargo in this winter’s icy conditions, we have collated driving safety tips to increase drivers’ chances of staying safe when severe weather creates poor road conditions.”

These tips include keeping an extra coat, gloves and hat in the truck, along with a few additional layers of clothing so warmth and comfort can be achieved quickly and on-the-fly; keeping an emergency kit consisting of extra water, a knife, dried fruit, high energy bars, first aid kit, jumper cables and flashlight; double-checking windshield wiper fluid and scrapers prior to hitting the road; keeping sand or salt in the truck to get the vehicle “unstuck” from an icy road; topping off the gas tank over half-full, which adds weight for better balance; and keeping extra batteries on hand for flashlights, radios, smartphones and other devices.

Insurance Truck representatives have stated that such horrific weather conditions, of course, make truck driving more challenging, and that drivers who prepare in advance with the aforementioned extra supplies, warm clothing, additional fuel and proper technology will be “a step ahead of the game.”
