How much activity do you participate in during the course of the week?

Active living is an approach to life that values physical activity at work, at school, at home, and during leisure time.

Active Living is not the same as a workout program. It is a conscious effort to be active every day of your life. Physical activity should never be rigorous.  It could be as simple as parking further away at the store and walking longer.  It could be gardening, playing with the kids, taking the dog for a walk, taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

This is easier than you think and here are some tips to help you keep on trucking! Continue reading

Safety and Space for Trucks on Highways

Driving in winter is never fun, not for city drivers, not for rural roads and especially not for highways.

In some areas we’re all so used to bumper-to-bumper driving that we can’t help but carry the same attitude with us on the highway. Unfortunately this can have disastrous results.

Witness what happened recently to one couple who got too close to a semi truck, as reported by The Weather Network:

The lesson to be learned is for all drivers to be aware of all surroundings. As seen in the report, the weather conditions were in white-out conditions and its at times like this where even the sturdiest of trucks can incur some impact and if you’re not keenly aware of what’s going on around you, you may otherwise not feel deep impacts like the pull of an extra vehicle. Similarly, if a civilian car is not acutely paying attention to the truck in front, to the side of or behind them, then accidents can happen.

Remember – the best way to ensure your car’s safety is to give plenty of space. Truck drivers, including TransX drivers, are well trained in being aware of other vehicles on the road, but remember that view is limited. The best tip? If you can’t see a truck driver’s rear-view mirror, there’s a good chance they can’t see you either.
