FACE COVERINGS ARE NOW REQUIRED AT ALL DECKER FACILITIES:
For your safety and the safety of others and in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19, please wear a face covering when you are out in public and/or are in large crowds. If you choose not to personally wear a face covering, we do ask that you respect other’s opinions on this matter and most importantly abide by the requirements at our Decker facilities as well as of our loyal customers and vendors. THANK YOU!
2020 BRAKE SAFETY WEEK – AUG 23-29:
Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Brake Safety Week is Aug. 23-29. Enforcement officials will inspect commercial motor vehicles throughout the week and vehicles found to have critical out-of-service brake violations, will be placed Out of Service. Vehicles that pass eligible inspections may receive a passed-inspection CVSA decal.
Checking brake system components is always part of the roadside inspection process; however, inspectors will be paying special attention to brake hoses/tubing and other brake system components during this year’s Brake Safety Week to highlight the importance of those components to vehicle mechanical fitness and safety.
Now until the end of Brake Safety Week, our Daily Safety Messages will feature information about brake safety.
SPEEDING – #1 IN UNSAFE DRIVING VIOLATIONS:
Speeding 6-10 mph over the limit has moved into the number one spot as the most frequently cited unsafe driving violation. Formerly it was number two behind Failure to Obey a Traffic Control Device (driving by an open roadside scale).
The consequences of speeding include increased fuel consumption, increased tire wear, increased brake wear, loss of scorecard bonus, negative information on a driver’s MVR and PSP AND loss of Professional Status – true Professional Drivers don’t speed, they plan their trips to arrive on time without breaking the law.
