This is my first winter driving in the snow as a UPS driver. What tips do y'all have to offer?
Drive fast and take chances!
It's just a box. Go slow make dough. Production is gone due to weather
As others have added...Go fast as all heck...take lots of chances!
Don't needlessly spin the rear wheels until you reach pavement with grip. You will wreck the differential.
What does it wreck when I'm lazy and instead of apply the brake hard and stopping 100% I throw it in park at a slow coast and it goes : gerrerrrreererrrrrrrrrre stop.
After several over allowed snowy/icy days in a row, questioned by OC sup or center manager about it. Standard answer, "Sorry, but I had to adjust to changing conditions".
if the driveway is on a hill you're good to go
I said the same thing. Had a rider that day.
make service at all costs. ( smirk )
any manager that gives you a hard time for being safe and using the methods during the snow season should not be listened to.
tell them i told you so. i didnt listen for 25 years and retired alive.
Slow down. Also, go to an empty parking lot and do donuts, hitting the brakes hard, so you can get a feel for how the truck reacts so you'll know how to respond.
1) Don't take chances.
2) You will be amazed on how differently a full truck drives and an empty one.
Perfect your tire boobies technique.
That looks like a crop circle in the snow.
