What do Easter and March Madness have in common? They bring people together to cheer, whether for a thrilling game or a joyful egg hunt! They also both bring increased road traffic and risks of serious accidents. As families embark on holiday trips, and fleets navigate the busier roads, SAFER driving is, as always, a critical concern.

The NTSI Fleet SAFER driving formula of Attitudes + Values = Behaviors is the way to make sure your team, your fleets, and your sweet little baby bunnies make it home Sunday and every day.

SAFER Driving Game-Changer Tips for Fleets & Families:

  • Enhance Travel Itinerary: Make use of sophisticated route planning tools to steer clear of crowded regions, particularly over Easter weekend and during March Madness events.
  • Stress Defensive Driving: To equip drivers for erratic road conditions, include behavior modification techniques that center on defensive driving tactics.
  • Plan Your Trip: Plan ahead for your Easter travels and take into account other routes to your destination to avoid the jam.
  • Plan Your Journey: Avoid the rush by planning your Easter travels ahead of time, considering alternative routes to your destination.
  • Stay Informed: Keep an eye on traffic updates and road safety advisories during March Madness festivities.

Embrace SAFER Driving Principles:

  • Situational Awareness: Always be aware of your surroundings and anticipate the actions of other drivers.
  • Focus: Put an end to outside distractions and maintain your attention on the road, particularly when seasonal events are thrilling.
  • Education: Engage in behavior modification training programs that reinforce safe driving habits and decision-making.
  • Responsibility: Keep in mind that driving properly is about protecting everyone on the road, not just yourself.

Let’s not overlook the significance of driver safety training when we alternate between the thrill of March Madness basketball and the excitement of Easter egg hunts. The Easter Bunny may not drive on the road, but you and your Fleets do, so make sure to schedule your SAFER driving training today before the seasonal rush.
