Goal Setting Tips for Truckers

Distracted by a Bee in Your Truck?

How can you keep from being distracted by a bee in your truck, as one driver supposedly was? (1)

Distracted by a Bee in Your Truck?(Note: He consequently caused a truck accident.)

The first thing to do is to try to reduce the number of ways that a bee -- or any insect -- can get into your truck.

  • If the air conditioning is working, perhaps use that instead of leaving the windows open.

  • If the air conditioning isn't working, perhaps use a screen in the window(s).

If the pest succeeds in getting in anyway, quickly evaluate your situation to see if it is safe and legal to slow down, pull over and park your rig.

After you're safely parked, then deal with the pest.

At the very least, if you slow down, put on your four-way flashers to let folks know that you're slowing down.

We do not recommend taking any action that leads to unsafe truck operations.

Are there other ways of dealing with this situation safely and frugally?

For example, will a grill screen reduce the likelihood of an insect flying through the air vents into the cab of your truck?

Please share your comments.
