Three Sixty Walk Around

The order in which you do things can change the entire outcome.

I have counted three accidents this year where a driver in a Chevrolet one-ton flat bed or larger truck backed into or over something causing damage and down time. I have one declaration for this, PREVENTABLE.

A 360 Walk Around is the process of completely walking around your vehicle just prior to moving it. It includes looking for hazards such as a vehicle parked behind you, beside you, a child or other person, or an obstacle, such as a pylon, or other object that could be in your vehicle’s path.

It’s also always a good habit to look for an area that provides “drive-through” parking spaces. Avoid backing up as much as possible. If you must back up, ask someone to direct you from the side at the rear.
