National Safety Month: Roadway Safety

National Safety Month continues this week with a focus on roadway safety.

In many areas across the U.S. deer are a huge problem for drivers—particularly during early morning and early evening commutes. In this video Chadd Yeatts, Schnabel National Power and Energy Services Leader, provides some universal tips to help you get where you’re going safely.

  • Be Alert During Peak Deer Activity Times:
    Deer are most active during dawn and dusk. Be extra cautious during these times.
  • Slow Down in Deer-Crossing Areas:
    Pay attention to deer crossing signs and reduce your speed in these areas.
  • Be Aware of Herd Behavior:
    Where there is one deer, there are often more. Slow down and be cautious if you see one deer cross the road as more may follow.
  • Do Not Swerve:
    If a collision with a deer seems imminent, slow down but do not swerve. Swerving can lead to losing control of your vehicle or hitting another car.
