April is...DISTRACTED DRIVING AWARENESS MONTH.
Distracted Driving continues to be an issue with the increased usage of mobile devices while on the road, and that isn't the only distraction causing the many accidents and tragedies that are constantly making headlines. Eating, changing radio stations, grooming yourself, etc., are all things that can easily prevent your focus from fully being where it needs to be- on the road and on your surroundings.
For the duration of the month, we'll be posting up different tips on practicing the utmost safety while on the road. Here's tip #1:
At Smith & Solomon, we advocate against distracted driving to the max. As leaders in the training industry for over 30 years, our primary concern is that everyone is enforcing and applying driver safety practices while on the road, at all times.

In 2010 I graduated from Smith & Solomon in Linden, NJ. Started working as a company driver, but my desire for growth led me to open my hauling and transportation company. Getting my CDL has allowed me to travel over 48 states and international Canada and Mexico and open my own company. Thanks to Smith & Solomon and the staff assisting me with my CDL - A and opening doors for my success. Safety first!
