Backing is one of those maneuvers that as a truck driver, you will do every day. To get it down right, it takes time and practice, but let’s face it, whether you’re a pro or not, you’re going to have to do it. So, in order to help you back properly and safely, Ken Harwood of the CR England safety department has made the video CR England Proper Backing.
In this video, Ken provides rules such as keeping your tandems in sight, using low gear, and simply taking it slow to help drivers of all levels back to the best of their ability. When you’re new to truck driving, safely backing a 53’ trailer can seem daunting and even impossible. Don’t worry though; CR England’s got your back. Follow the tips in this video and remember to take is slow. Better slow and safe than fast and dangerous.
