WINNIPEG, Man. — Bison Transport has established itself as one of the safest fleets in North America. Now, it’s reaching out to automobile drivers to share some tips on how to safely share the roads with trucks.
The company has added a new component to its driver development program, which focuses on four-wheelers. The Let’s Bring Safety Home course is designed for the driving public, providing automobile drivers with information such as how to recognize tractor-trailer blind spots and the limitations of the equipment.
Bison plans to use its simulator to give motorists a truck driver’s perspective in a safe environment. Bison will initially roll the course out to the family and friends of its employees and professional drivers at three of its terminals: Winnipeg, June 27; Mississauga, July 4; and Calgary, July 9.
