VEHICLE FLEET SAFETY(Commercial, Highway):
"The only excellent worker is also a competent and responsible driver." -- Jay W. Preston
Insurance Loss Control experience providing
accident prevention consultation services to policy holders. Policy holders
included LTL (less than load) and carload cargo shippers; car, truck, and equipment rental agencies; food, wet produce, livestock,
and commodities shippers; delivery fleets; and construction fleets; automobile
dealers, service stations, and parking lots.
Good familiarity with DOT motor carrier regulations and other applicable portions of Federal and State regulations, as well as SAE standards.
Developed the "Watch that Tail" program for preventing or minimizing backing accidents in the fleet of a major delivery fleet (laundry). Trained the "problem" drivers of a major concrete specialty contractor in the NSC-DDC (Defensive Driving) program.
Developed the "Don't Risk It, Don't Race It" training program for preventing railroad grade crossing collisions with vehicles and pedestrians, and presenting the visual sensory lag-time phenomenon and how it relates to high speed rail location and clearance distance perception. At 55mph, an approaching train is on the order of twenty feet in front of where it is visually perceived.
Incorporated the basics of fleet safety into Advanced Safety Technology courses that I have taught at U.S.C.
My motor vehicle cases tend to center on practices, training, and the human factors associated with vehicle incidents.

Proper use of helmets can prevent injuries to motorcyclists (Even to teddy bears on the back).
