FAQ

Why is it important to follow stop signs and signals for light commercial vehicles?

Following stop signs and signals is crucial because light commercial vehicles often carry cargo and have different handling characteristics compared to personal vehicles. Non-compliance can lead to serious accidents and fatalities.

What should I do if my vehicle stalls on a railroad crossing?

Exit the vehicle immediately and call local law enforcement for assistance. Only attempt to restart the vehicle if you can post lookouts to warn of approaching trains.

How can I improve my reaction time at intersections?

Use the "stop-plus-one rule" by counting an additional second after stopping to scan for hazards before proceeding. This helps ensure a thorough check of the intersection.

What are the consequences of running a stop sign or red light?

Running a stop sign or red light increases the likelihood of fatal accidents and serious injuries, as well as legal and financial repercussions.

What strategies can help manage time and avoid rushing?

Plan your routes to allow extra time for delays. If running late, notify your supervisor and explain that you will arrive as soon as safe driving allows.
