[SAFETY] How Seeing The Warning Signs Can Protect Fleet Investment

When drivers are sent to do jobs, your business essentially invests in the ability of both your driver and the vehicle to deliver. But what happens when the vehicle becomes dangerous? What are the signs?

According to State Farm, this is what you should look out for:

  • Seeing a pattern: if fuses blow often, take the vehicle in for maintenance.
  • Oil or other fluid leaks under the vehicle
  • Cracked or loose wiring, or wiring with exposed metal. Also look out for broken or loose hoses.
  •  Loud sounds from the exhaust system
  • Rapid changes in fuel level, oil levels or engine temperature

If you catch onto any of these red flags while on the road, it is best to pull over and either call your operation manager to get the appropriate servicing on the vehicle. If left neglected, both the driver and vehicle are put at risk. There’s a better way to monitor an entire fleet’s maintenance needs: fleet management software like Silent Passenger®.
