FITCHBURG, MA – Chevin Fleet Solutions, a supplier of fleet management software, is offering trucking companies some old-school winter driving advice with the help of a new infographic.

The graphic suggests the importance of seasonal supplies and inspections, and offers reminders about how to enter and operate vehicles in slick conditions.

Remember the dangers of black ice? The graphic also reminds you to watch for telltale signs of the condition such as the buildup of ice on mirror arms, and road spray coming from tires on stopping vehicles.
