Prevent Secondary CrashesFeb 15th, 2013 | By Editorial Staff | Category: Tow Tip
One of the best strategies towing and recovery operators can take to prevent secondary crashes at accident scenes is to limit their time on scene, says Tow Times safety writer Patrick Gratzianna. This is not permission to cut corners, but rather a reminder to work efficiently. Even though your truck may be completely off the road, just being there causes a distraction to motorists and in some cases, secondary crashes.
