Well, maybe not just yet – but you must have noticed the changes in the weather. It’s getting lighter earlier and darker later. The sun is still a bit low in the sky in the mornings and late afternoon, and it seems to be ‘Murphy’s Law’ that you are always driving into the sun!
Now is the time for a bit of a tidy-up around the workplace.
Make sure your windows, mirrors, lights and reflectors are clean and clear, and check your screen washer fluid.
If you have a reversing camera, clean that too – and fit a glare filter or sun shade to it if needed.
Get rid of unwanted items from your cab – like thermos flasks, scrapers, cans of de-icer and ‘Easy-Start’ – and don’t forget all those receipts and loyalty card tucked behind the sun visors – you may need to use those soon!
Invest is a pair of good quality sunglasses, and keep a spare pair in the cab.
Stay clean, stay clear, stay safe.
