PRESS: DOT Physicals Tips – 5 Holiday Driving Dangers for Commercial Drivers

Dr. Brad Levine, Orlando Chiropractor, DOT physicals provider, and owner at Workflow Employer Services releases new article sharing 5 holiday driving risks for commercial drivers to be aware of this season.

Altamonte Springs, FL — December 15, 2016 — Workflow Employer Services and DOT physical location owner, Dr. Brad Levine recently published a new article on his website “DOT Physicals Tips: 5 Holiday Road Dangers for Commercial Drivers.”

Dr. Levine starts off his DOT physicals tips by acknowledging that commercial drivers have a special layer of risk to deal with over the holidays.

Aside from all the other drivers on the road and the special considerations that along brings, there are other holiday driving dangers to look out for too.

As Dr. Levine says, “There are five major risk areas that when multiplied by the greater numbers of people on the road, can mean much higher risk for commercial drivers. Being aware of these risk areas can help you drive more defensively and hopefully, arrive at your destination(s) safely.”

From there, Dr. Levine goes on to outline these five specific dangers to look out for while on the road.

The first one he covers is sleepiness. He cautions, “Over the holidays, people are trying to do more than they usually do, in the same amount of time. One way they compensate or “find extra time” is by shortchanging sleep.”  Since drowsy driving is shown to be as risky as driving while intoxicated, this is scary.

Other potential dangers he touches on are distracted driving, impaired driving, weather, and overly-emotional driving.
