Guest: Andy Roberts, owner and president of Mountain Transport Institute
A truck crash along a mountainous portion of I-70 in Colorado earlier this year, killing four people and injuring at least six, has highlighted the dangers of driving along steep grades and how truckers need to employ different driving techniques along these routes to make it through safely.
In this episode of the “Eyes on the Road” podcast, presented by PrePass, host Evan Lockridge talks with an expert who trains truckers to drive in mountainous areas. Andy Roberts, owner and president of Mountain Transport Institute in British Columbia offers up safety advice for drivers trucking along mountain passes as well as what fleets can do to make sure their drivers are up to the challenge of traveling through these areas.
