I. Precautions
 

Observe the laws governing the operation of a motor vehicle scrupulously and make every effort to follow good driving practice and safety rules.

  • Back a truck with the utmost care and caution. Use all rearview mirrors, turn and look back and, if possible, have some­one give you directions. Back slowly and cautiously and watch traffic conditions around the vehicle at all times.
  • Bad weather requires changing your driving procedures. Exercise exceptional care in such conditions.
  • Adjust your speed to meet road, weather and traffic conditions.
  • Never load a truck beyond its licensed capacity.
  • Avoid situations that call for quick stops.
  • Never allow an unauthorized person to occupy the driver’s seat, operate the truck or any of its controls.
